(ANSAmed) - MADRID, FEBRUARY 15 - In discussing Italy's upcoming elections, European Commission Vice President and Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia said that ''it is clear that some of the political platforms support European integration more than others''. ''It is also clear that Europe is concerned over a possible win by positions which are not constructive towards the EU project,'' he told ANSA today at a Madrid press conference. Almunia was responding to a question over EU possible concerns about the outcome of the February 24-25 elections.
