ROME (Reuters) - Outgoing Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti said on Monday that all parties had a responsibility to ensure that a government could be formed after inconclusive elections left no party able to form a majority in the upper house.

"A government for the country must be assured," he said but added that it would be premature to discuss possible outcomes.
