Italian President opposes early elections

Italian President Giorgio Napolitano on Friday rejected suggestions that Italy would have to return to the polls immediately after this week's election, which left no party with a workable majority in parliament.

"I'm not interested in a new vote," he told reporters at the margins of an event in Berlin, where he gave a speech.

Napolitano, whose 7-year term expires on May 15, also repeated that he would not seek another term. He doubted his successor would want to dissolve parliament early either, because Italy needed a stable government.
