Rome, February 26 - Italians waiting to know the
formation of their new government and 17th legislature should
get their answer by Easter, sources said on Tuesday.
The country's general election Sunday and Monday produced a
stalemate, with Pier Luigi Bersani's centre-left alliance
failing to win a working majority in parliament and ex-premier
Silvio Berlusconi's centre right saying the vote should be
declared "too close to call".
To break the gridlock, horse-trading in the House and
Senate will have to take place to try to form a majority
government.
Bersani, whose coalition won in the House, is expected to
make the first proposals to the head of state to form the new
government.
President Giorgio Napolitano has called for the first
meetings of the House to be convened on March 15, 20 days
following the elections.
By March 16 the House formation is expected.
The Senate, instead, is expected to take shape by March 20
with members choosing their alliances.
One of the first tasks of the House and Senate joint
assembly on April 15 will be to elect the successor to
Napolitano, whose term expires on May 15.
