President Giorgio Nepolitano, currently visiting Germany, says he’s confident a working government will be formed in Italy. But it’s unclear whether centre-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani can find a coalition partner
Lawmakers are set to begin voting Thursday for Italy's new president. The prime minister reached across a political divide to Silvio Berlusconi for help in getting a candidate approved. Megan Williams reports from Rome.
Italian voters snubbed the old guard and no clear winner emerged from the fray, even though a protest movement did capitalize on voters turning their backs on the ruling class. Now, could new elections be on the cards?
Seeking a solution to stalemate in the Senate, Italy's upper house of parliament, election-winner Pier Luigi Bersani has said his center-left alliance will not ally with former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's bloc.
Polls have closed in the second day of voting in Italy's election, with the earliest projections pointing to an advantage for the center-left coalition led by Pier Luigi Bersani. Final results are still hours away.
