Rome, April 20 - President Giorgio Napolitano said
he faced a "difficult challenge at a crucial moment" after being
re-elected Italy's head of state on Saturday.
He also called on "everyone to honour their duties" to
"reinforce the (country's) political institutions".
Napolitano agreed to stand for re-election after five
previous ballots failed to elect a successor to the 87-year-old
because of rifts within the centre-left Democratic Party (PD),
the biggest group in parliament.
The PD, ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom
(PdL) party, the regionalist Northern League, the Northern
League and outgoing Premier Mario Monte's Civic Choice party all
backed Napolitano and he was re-elected for a second term with a
big majority.
He now must get back to working on ending the impasse that
Italy has endured since February's inconclusive general election
and see which parties are willing to form a government on the
basis of a programme drafted by a group of experts.
Napolitano said he would give more details about how he
intends to set about this on Monday.
