Italian Parliament President Laura Boldrini (L) talks with Five-Star Mouvement's leader in the lower house Roberta Lombardi (R) during the vote for the election of Italy's President on April 20, 2013 at the Italian parliament in Rome. 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 Ex-trade union leader Franco Marini and widely respected former European Commission chief Romano Prodi have both now withdrawn their candidacies to be president, and the top-selling Corriere della Sera daily said the country was 'suspended in a void'.
