Bersani confident of finding exit from presidential impasse

Rome, April 18 - A solution will be found to the apparent impasse in electing a new Italian president, Democratic Party leader Pier Luigi Bersani said Thursday. He spoke after his candidate, Senate Speaker Franco Marini, failed to win the two-thirds majority needed in the first round of voting earlier in the day. Marini failed even though he had the support of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party as well as some PD members. Speaking to reporters later, Bersani said he was unfazed. "You will see that we will find a solution," he said. "We will bring together the assembly of electors and you will see that the solution will be found".
