President apologizes for no women in 'wise men' panels


(see previous).
Rome, April 2 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano said Tuesday that although he understands why some
people were "disappointed" with the composition of his "wise
men" panels, he believes he chose the best people to propose
solid economic and political reforms within 10 days.
"I proceeded under particular urgency and difficulty," in
putting together the economic and institutional panels, which
began separate meetings on Tuesday, explained Napolitano.
The 10 men, drawn from economic, political, and
bureaucratic circles, will address "serious, urgent and
underlying problems," in Italy, Napolitano added.
The panels have been asked to break Italy's post-election
deadlock but Tuesday's sessions were described as a presidential
spokesperson as "informal...reconnaissance" sessions for panel
members to meet one another.
Napolitano also apologized for not including any women in
the panels, which were hastily appointed and announced on
Saturday, after Pier Luigi Bersani of the Democratic Party was
unable to pull together a government out of the various parties
elected to parliament in late February's general election.
But, explained Napolitano, these panels are not formal
committees and will have only a very short life, adding "nothing
here is created to interfere in the work of Parliament...nor in
the decisions of incumbent political forces".
