Monti Will Get Second Term If Italy Vote Unclear, Prodi Says

Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, who has declined to run for a second term, may be reappointed if voters fail to give sufficient backing to one of the candidates in next year’s elections, Romano Prodi said.

“If there is no clear winner, Mr. Monti will be again prime minister,” Prodi, a former Italian prime minister, said in a Bloomberg Television interview with Guy Johnson today. “He has been an excellent prime minister.”
