Rome, March 6 - Centre-left leader Pier Luigi
Bersani attended a meeting of his Democratic Party (PD) on
Wednesday to outline the platform for government that he intends
to present to President Giorgio Napolitano after Italy's general
election failed to a produce a clear winner.
Bersani's alliance came first in the vote but it failed to
win a working majority in the Senate after ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's centre right came a close second and former
comedian Beppe Grillo's anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S)
benefited from a big protest vote.
There is a danger Italy will face a period of political
deadlock.
Bersani has ruled out forming a government with Berlusconi.
But Grillo, whose movement holds the balance of power in
parliament, is hostile to the established parties and has said
he will not back a government led by Bersani or Berlusconi.
Bersani is hoping to persuade Grillo to soften his stance,
saying he will ask parliament to vote confidence in a platform
made up of eight points that are in line with M5S's manifesto.
Wednesday's meeting of senior party officials will vote on
Bersani's proposal.
