Rome, April 15 - Center-left leader Pier Luigi
Bersani and outgoing Premier Mario Monti on Monday said they had
agreed to seek "the greatest possible consensus" when selecting
the next president of Italy, according to a statement Monday.
The two men met Monday to discuss the conclusions of the
so-called "10 wise men" appointed by outgoing President Giorgio
Napolitano to agree on consensus platforms that all political
parties could stomach in order to forge a government following
nearly two months of gridlock after inconclusive general
elections.
On Friday the wise men issued proposals, which included a
new election system in which only the Lower House of parliament
would have political functions, instead of the current system in
which the House and Senate are equally powerful.
Napolitano said his group of highly respected political and
institutional figures had found "common ground" and that it is
now up to the political parties to make a "similar effort of
good will for an agreement" to break the deadlock.
Parliament, as well as 58 'grand electors' appointed by the
regions, will vote for Napolitano's successor later this week as
his seven-year term comes to an end in May.
