Rome, April 17 - Outgoing Premier Mario Monti's
Civic Choice party said Wednesday that two-time prime minister
Romano Prodi will not become Italy's next president because he
does not have the support of Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right
People of Freedom (PdL) party.
Prodi has been named among the possible candidates that the
centre-left Democratic Party (PD), the biggest group in
parliament, may propose to become the next head of state.
But the former European commission president is seen as the
nemesis of three-time premier Berlusconi after defeating him in
elections in 1996 and 2006.
Lawmakers from the Lower and Upper House of parliament and
representatives of Italy's regional governments will start
voting for President Giorgio Napolitano's successor on Thursday.
"We don't have any problem with Prodi's name, but it won't
happen because he cannot be elected with a broad majority,"
Civic Choice coordinator Andrea Olivero said on Italian radio.
"We are aiming for this with great determination and we
will push all the way to ensure that PdL agrees on the name
chosen.
"That does not mean we like all the people who have broad
support, but broad support is an indispensable condition at the
moment. The Constitution asks us for this".
