ITALY-POLITICS-GOVERNMENT-PRESIDENT-ELECTION

A picture shows the Quirinale Palace, the presidential official residence, on April 20, 2013 in Rome. The election of Italy's President at the Italian parliament 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 Ex-trade union leader Franco Marini and widely respected former European Commission chief Romano Prodi have both now withdrawn their candidacies to be president, and the top-selling Corriere della Sera daily said the country was 'suspended in a void'.
