President Giorgio Nepolitano, currently visiting Germany, says he’s confident a working government will be formed in Italy. But it’s unclear whether centre-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani can find a coalition partner
Italy's would-be coalition partners need more time to thrash out a government deal. Based on the 5-Star Movement's rule in Parma, locals have little hope for success on a national level, as Megan Williams discovered.
The parties that won the most votes in Italy's elections have set forth the fundamentals for their coalition pact. Members of the 5-Star Movement and the League will vote on the terms of the deal over the weekend.
Two populist groups have emerged as the main forces in Italian politics following the March elections. The Five Star Movement has developed out of a protest group and the League has stepped up to head the center-right.
The 5-Star Movement triumphed in Italy's election and intends to carry through on the promise of a basic income. Party officials insist that they can make it a reality sooner or later, Michele Bertelli reports.
