Rome, February 25 - Italy's centre left suggested
Monday that it should be first in line to form the country next
government, even though no coalition looked set to have a
working majority in the Senate.
"The coalition that wins the House has the duty to make the
first proposals to the head of state," said Enrico Letta, a
senior member of the main centre-left Democratic Party.
Partial results suggested the centre left would have a
majority in the Lower House.
The centre left was also ahead in partial results for the
Upper House, although many projections said ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's centre-right alliance would be the biggest bloc
there once all the votes are counted.
Letta added that the election's inconclusive outcome
presented huge dangers for the eurozone's third largest economy,
which is in recession but has emerged from the financial crisis
it was in when outgoing premier Mario Monti took the helm of an
emergency technocrat government after Silvio Berlusconi was
forced to resign in November 2011.
"We are faced with a crisis that will be long, complex and
we'll have to go through it step by step," said Letta.
"If we don't take lots of steps all together, there's a
risk of falling and the future of Italy is at stake.
"Having a Senate with no majority is a situation at the
limit that has never been seen before in Italy".
