Italian parliamentarians once again faced with the choice

April 29 2006

Italian Parliament again failed to elect the Speaker of the Upper House.

Originally, according to a vote, the Speaker Franco Marini was elected, a candidate from a block of Romano Prodi. With a small margin Marini defeated his opponent, Giulio Andreotti, the candidate of the block, Silvio Berlusconi.

After some time the voting results were canceled. Experts have found that some ballots were filled with errors, reports AP.

Vote on the candidacy of Chairman of the Upper House of Parliament will resume this morning - at 10.30 am Moscow time. To be elected Speaker of Parliament, the candidate will be sufficient to gain a simple majority vote.
