BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti again avoided commenting on his political future on Friday after growing calls for him to stand as a candidate in next year’s election.

“I do not think it is either possible or appropriate at the moment for me to enter into this subject, which concerns Italian voters and their choices,” Monti told a news conference in Brussels where he was attending a European Union summit.
