    Italy parties seek way out of election stalemate

    It seems there has been gridlock, since no one has got majority. The centre left (communists) have the lead followed by berlusconi's center-right coalition. The 3rd spot is by a newcomer beppo grillo (who was comedian formerly). Mario monti the technocrat PM is 4th with least votes.

    As a result: Italian results rattle global markets

    North Italy (especially Lombardia region- milan is part of that) is the richest, most productive and heavily industrialised part of Italy while South Italy is relatively poor and poorly industrialised part of the Italy. Right parties mostly win the North Italy while Left parties mostly win South Italy. And then there are centre left, centre right parties to split these votes giving rise to hung parliament. It has been like this for past 2 decades. But some or the other form of coalition will be formed for the greater cause of Euro.

    Even if they voted, there will be a media blanket ban. This Q can be answered only by subramanyam swamy

    Every italian is right now tremendously pissed off with the election results, especially younger generation. People are talking about leaving country.

    Italy's Berlusconi sentenced to year in prison over newspaper report
    Is this something like what happened in pakistan where pm gilani was pronounced guilty but not arrested/jailed.

    On a side note, this could impact the government formation process over there.

    I thought Bologna in North Italy was/is a major stronghold for the PCI (Italian Communist Party)?
