Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi insists on verifying the results of parliamentary elections. According to him, the election results could affect numerous violations alleged.

The Prime Minister also said that he discussed this issue with President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, while Berlusconi did not specify what was the answer of the President.

Leader of the winning coalition center-left, Romano Prodi, said he was not afraid of any audits, as confident of victory.
