Brussels, April 20 - European Parliament Speaker
Martin Schulz on Saturday thanked Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano for agreeing to stand for re-election as head of
state.
Napolitano agreed to stand for re-election after five
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 deadlock threatened to further complicate efforts to
end the political impasse Italy has endured since February's
inconclusive general election as the president has a key role in
orchestrating efforts to form a new government in a hung
parliament.
"I thank President Napolitano for having taken
responsibility and his generosity in accepting to stand again to
be the president of the Italian republic at such a difficult
time," said Schulz.
"I trust him as an institutional figure and his experience
will help the country emerge from the impasse and regain
stability and cohesion, which is necessary for Italy and
Europe".
