Rome, April 9 - Tuesday's meeting between
centre-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani and centre-right leader
Silvio Berlusconi to discuss Italy's next president and other
issues ended inconclusively after an hour of talks.
"It seems to me it was a good meeting, but we are just at
the beginning," PD Deputy Secretary Enrico Letta said.
During the meeting, no names were put forth for the
country's president, PdL Secretary Angelino Alfano said.
However, "(the candidate) must be someone of
unquestionable prestige and of recognized institutional
competence," Alfano said.
"The starting point must be widely shared," Letta said.
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano's seven-year term
ends mid May.
Presidents, who represent national unity and have the
power to help governments form and vet laws, are usually
expected to be voted by a broad majority.
Napolitano has been struggling to break Italy's
post-election stalemate but cannot dissolve parliament because
of Constitutional curbs on a president's powers in the last six
months of his term, meaning that the job will likely fall on his
successor.
