Italian lawmakers still haven’t managed to agree on a new president after a fourth round of voting, a sign that it will be harder than initially thought for Prime Minister Mario Draghi to get the job.

The fourth round of inconclusive voting showed growing support for reappointing incumbent Sergio Mattarella, who got 166 votes even if he repeatedly signaled he wouldn’t be available for a second term.
