Italy’s former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has launched a scathing attack on leading European parliamentarians within his own centre-right bloc.

It comes as polls show his centre-right coalition making rapid gains ahead of next month’s elections.

In an exclusive interview with euronews, the head of Italy’s opposition People of Freedom Party criticises the European People’s Party leader Joseph Daul for backing his rival Mario Monti.

Berlusconi believes the EPP’s support for Mario Monti is based on him wanting closer ties with Berlin.

“Daul is just one of the EPP’s 14 deputy presidents. Maybe he has a personal ambitions. Don’t forget he speaks German better than French, because he is from Strasbourg. He just wants to be somebody to give a boost to his political career,” said Berlusconi.

He also dismissed claims of having personal issues with other prominent European Politicians such as Martin Schulz and Jean-Claude Juncker.
