Voting in Italy's parliament to pick a president entered a chaotic third day today, with the left in total disarray after its leaders resigned over failure to get their candidates elected. The situation deepened a political crisis triggered by a general election two months ago that left no clear winner to govern the country. Ex-trade union leader Franco Marini and widely respected former European Commission chief Romano Prodi have both now withdrawn their candidacies to be president, and the top-selling Corriere della Sera daily said the country was 'suspended in a void'.
