Italians vote in unpredictable elections

Italians have begun voting in an unpredictable election critical to European markets as the country suffers its longest economic recession in 20 years. Polling booths opened at 8am (07:00 GMT) and will close at 10pm on Sunday. On Monday, voters can cast their ballots between 7am and 3pm. Four candidates are taking part in the first general election since former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, one of those standing, resigned in November 2011 after becoming embroiled in a series of scandals and escalating the country's debt crisis.
