Rome, February 21 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano has no interest in standing for a second term, his
office said in a statement Thursday.
Following national elections Sunday and Monday, the new
government will select a new president, said the statement from
the office of Napolitano, who is completing his seven-year term
in May.
"The Parliament in joint session with representatives of
the regions will elect a new president of the republic," said
the note from the presidential Quirinal Palace.
"He appreciates and thanks those with confidence in him to
serve a second term".
On Wednesday, outgoing Premier Mario Monti said that he was
backing Emma Bonino, who, like him, is a former European
commissioner, to become Italy's next president.
Bonino, 64, is a leading member of the small Radical party
that promotes economic and social liberalism and champions
human-rights issues.
Monti has said it would be a "great idea" to elect a woman
as next Italian president.
Italy has never had a woman premier or president.
