Democratic Party (PD) general secretary Pier Luigi Bersani casts his vote for the election of Italy's President on April 20, 2013 at the Italian parliament in Rome. Italy's 87-year-old President Giorgio Napolitano said today he would run for a second term despite earlier ruling out the prospect, following an appeal from the main parties to help defuse an increasingly tense political crisis.'I consider it necessary to offer my availability,' Napolitano said in a statement, as bickering lawmakers prepared for a sixth round of voting in parliament that he is now expected to win by a large margin.
