Pres. recalls 'historic compromise' amid political logjam


Rome, April 8 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano on Monday recalled the country's 'historic
compromise' of 1976 between parties on opposite ends of the
political spectrum as politicians today are at an impasse to
forming a government.
"It took courage to make that unprecedented choice of
(forming) a broad coalition," said Napolitano before the Senate
on Monday in a speech devoted to Italian Communist politician
and writer Gerardo Chiaromonte, who died 20 years ago Sunday.
Napolitano, who is working to overcome gridlock in
parliament after inconclusive elections in February, was
referring to the decision of the Communist Party to support the
Christian Democrat party after intense negotiations.
Both parties are now defunct.
Today, direct talks between parties in parliament have
stalled after former Communist Pier Luigi Bersani, the head of
the center-left Democratic Party (PD), received a
government-formation mandate but failed to garner cross-party
support from the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) of
Beppe Grillo and the center-right People of Freedom (PdL) party
of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi.
