Rome, February 25 - Centre-left leader Pier Luigi
Bersani said Italy was faced with a delicate situation after his
alliance failed to win a working majority in parliament.
The centre left won outright control of the House, even
though it only had 124,407 votes more (0.36%) than Silvio
Berlusconi's centre right, thanks to the allocation of bonus
seats that goes to the winning alliance.
But it had only 119 seats in the Senate, with a handful of
seats still to be assigned on Tuesday, compared to 117 for the
centre right.
Both blocs are distant from the magic number of 158 needed
to have a working majority in the Upper House.
"The centre left won in the House and it did in the Senate
too in terms of the number of votes," Bersani said.
"It's obvious to everyone that a very delicate situation
has developed for the country.
"We will manage the responsibilities that these elections
have given us in the interests of Italy".
