Prodi still unsure about Berlusconi taking back seat

Milan, October 25 - Two-time Italian premier Romano Prodi said Thursday that it is still not certain whether his old rival Silvio Berlusconi has retired from front-line politics. Berlusconi ended months of speculation on Wednesday when the media magnate said he would not run for a fourth term as premier in elections next spring as the candidate for his centre-left People of Freedom (PdL) party. "Wait before writing the headlines because you never know," said Prodi, who earlier this month was appointed as United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's special envoy for the Sahel, when asked about Berlusconi's political future. Prodi, the former president of the European Commission, led centre-left coalitions to victory over Berlusconi in elections in Italy in 1996 and 2006.
