Italy re-elects Napolitano as President

Italy has re-elected President Giorgio Napolitano for a second term following a last-minute deal between party chiefs to break the deadlock after five previous ballots failed to produce a winner. With the support of all major parties, except the 5-Star Movement, Napolitano easily won the vote on Saturday, which required more than 50 percent of votes in a special sitting of both houses of parliament. Napolitano, who at 87 is already among the world's oldest heads of state, may not serve the full seven-year term and could resign after the political stalemate that has lasted since an inconclusive February election is solved.
