BERLIN (AP) -- Former Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi is suggesting he will attempt a return to power under his old party name.
In an interview printed Monday in Germany's Bild newspaper, Berlusconi said he's asked "often and emphatically" to step back into the political ring.
He says: "I can only say I won't let my old People of Freedom Party down. We will soon return to the old party name by the way, `Forza Italia"' (Go Italy).
The 75-year-old media mogul resigned eight months ago with the country in financial shambles and a personal legacy tarnished by sex and corruption scandals.
He tells Bild he saw his resignation as a way to allow Premier Mario Monti to use his broad support to bring necessary changes.
He says: "I wanted to make reforms possible."
