Italian president reiterates won't accept second term

Berlin, March 1 - President Giorgio Napolitano reiterated that he would not accept a second term as head of State on Friday speaking to members of the German press during a State visit. "I am convinced that the founding fathers conceived the role of President of the Republic as measured in seven year terms," Napolitano said. "It is not a coincidence that no other president has served a second term. There are age factors and its limitations to consider," the 87-year-old president. Napolitano completes his seven-year term in May. Photo: Italian President Giorgio Napolitano and German President Joachim Glauck.
