Napolitano says election 'test' of his strength

Rome, April 22 - Italian President Giorgio Napolitano said on Monday after being sworn in for his second term as Italian president that his re-election was a "serious test" of his strength. Napolitano thanked MPs, saying he appreciated his election "especially since it came from so many newly elected members (of parliament) who belong to a generation far from mine and not only in age". The widely respected Napolitano, 87, the first ex-Communist head of State, was voted in Saturday after two candidates from the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) flopped in a dramatic split.
