Rome, December 19 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano said on Wednesday that February 24 seems the most
suitable date for voters to go to the polls.
In a statement, the president said that date for a vote was
in the "best interests of the country" and would "not
excessively prolong the campaign".
Napolitano said the interior ministry had considered issues
around the technical requirements for Italians voting abroad and
agreed that the February date was suitable.
Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's Party of Freedom (PdL) has
argued the vote should be delayed until March to be sure
Italians abroad can vote.
Critics say that PdL is merely stalling to give them more
time to prepare.
Napolitano on Wednesday rejected Berlusconi's contention
that there was an unnecessary "rush" to vote, saying the
election campaign should not be "prolonged excessively".
