No President No Government

A second round of voting for Italy's new President on Tuesday morning failed to produce a winner.
The centre-left coalition, whose candidate is former House Speaker Giorgio Napolitano, said it would vote with blank ballots again as it waited for signs of "convergence" from the centre right.
A third round of voting will begin this afternoon.
(No President means No Government, but I can assure you that by tomorrow evening Italy will have a new President. Hopefully not a former communist!)
