Rome, February 25 - A probable center-left victory
in Italian elections Monday made headlines across international
media as the first exit polls predicted a sizeable majority in
the House and a moderate lead in the Senate.
Financial daily The Wall Street Journal and German
newspaper Die Welt both noted positive results in bond markets
as the Italian spread with the benchmark German bund dropped
eight basis points in minutes to 261 after exit polls showed the
center left in the lead.
The stock market also surged shortly after the results of
the instant polls, with Milan's FTSE-Mib index up 3.9%.
"The two-day election is one of the most important in
recent Italian history, as it comes after a year of an emergency
government that introduced a number of austerity measures aimed
at fixing Italy's public finances and set the country on the
path of longer-term economic reforms," said the Wall Street
Journal.
Other media leaders such as the Financial Times, BBC, Le
Figaro and El Pais issued breaking news on the likelihood that
Pier Luigi Bersani, head of the center left, would win more
votes than centre-right leader Silvio Berlusconi, the centrist
and outgoing Premier Mario Monti, and the antiestablishment
comic Beppe Grillo, as opinion polls before the election Sunday
and Monday had predicted.
