Rome, April 19 - Puglia Governor Nichi Vendola, the
leader of the leftwing SEL party, said it would once again back
Stefano Rodota' if Romano Prodi is no longer a candidate for
president.
"Now we need to wait and see how the Democratic Party (PD)
reacts," added Vendola.
Two-time centre-left premier and ex-European Commission
chief Romano Prodi failed to be elected Italian president in the
fourth ballot Friday after the PD decided to stump for him
earlier in the day.
SEL, which allied with the PD in February's inconclusive
general election, had backed Prodi in the fourth round after
previously voting for Rodota'.
Rodota', an ex-Communist who was the inaugural chairman of
the first heir to Italy's once-strong Communist Party in 1990,
is the candidate of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement.
Sources close to Prodi say he is mulling whether or not to
pull his name as a candidate.
