Over one third Italians say Bersani should take a step back

Rome, March 15 - Just over one third of Italians believe centre-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani should take a step back to allow the formation of a new government after February general elections left no party or coalition with a clear majority, an opinion poll said Friday. Instead 28% of Italians think the Democratic Party (PD) secretary should pursue an alliance with the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) of comedian Beppe Grillo, according to the Trieste-based pollster SWG. This figure rises to 66% among centre-left voters. So far attempts by the PD to reach a government agreement with M5S have proved elusive. Some 13% of Italians support an alliance between PD and the centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi. The same percentage instead sees new elections as the only answer to the present deadlock.
