The President of Italy has just got off the telly. He says that the Monti government is remaining because it has never been subject to a vote of no confidence. Monti has offered his resignation but he, Napolitano, has not accepted it. Monti therefore retains the confidence of Parliament and can remain conducting the business of the Italian state.
Unfortunately the Parliament that voted confidence in Senator Monti no longer exists. On 25 February 2013 we elected a new Parliament. Senator Monti does not enjoy the confidence either of this Parliament or of the electorate (who voted him down in droves, he got less than 10% of the vote).
Napolitano is not just off the telly - there are other things he's off as well.
