President Napolitano Not Stepping Down Early

President Napolitano has confirmed that he will proffer the invitation to form Italy's next administration.  He had expected to leave the task to his successor but it falls to him, much to his regret.  So he's not stepping down early with the early demise of the current Monti administration, but squaring up to the complex political choices and soundings he must undertake in the next couple of months.

He stressed that the influences upon his choices will be political, not the institutional pressures that he responded to in November 2011 when Berlusconi's administration fell and the President appointed senator Monti to  a 'save Italy'  role.
