Napolitano calls for more cooperation between parties

Rome, April 22 - The leaders of Italy's main political parties must find a way to work together, newly re-elected President Giorgio Napolitano said Monday. In response, reflecting the deep divisions between the parties, the troubled Democratic Party (PD) sat in silence at Napolitano's words while the People of Freedom (PdL) members applauded with enthusiasm. Italy has been without a government for the past eight weeks, since the February general election failed to deliver a resounding majority to any one party. Since then, the PD's leader Pier Luigi Bersani struggled unsuccessfully to forge a coalition without including an agreement with the PdL, led by former premier Silvio Berlusconi.
