Forex Flash: Political resolution alludes in Italy – Deutsche Bank

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The Italian parliament will convene to elect a successor to President Napolitano.

Marini faces opposition from within Bersani's own coalition, with Bersani's main party rival, Matteo Renzi, immediately saying he would not back the candidacy.” Renzi described Marini as a candidate from the last century.
