(AP) - Former European commissioner and top designated Italian Premier Mario Monti leaves the Senate, in Rome, Sunday, Nov. 13, 2011. Leaders of Silvio Berlusconi's party have given their approval for economist Mario Monti to try to form a government, but say it can only last just long enough to implement measures to save Italy from financial disaster. Angelino Alfano, head of the conservative party, says whether the party will actually support any Monti government depends on who is in the Cabinet and details of his program.
