Italy's main parties appealed to President Giorgio Napolitano today to stay on and help resolve a deepening political crisis after they failed to elect his successor in five rounds of voting. Rodota's candidacy has been put forward by the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, which has called on the other parties to vote for him. Two candidates proposed by the centre-left -- former trade unionist Franco Marini and former European Commission president Romano Prodi -- failed to get elected in voting on Thursday and Friday and have withdrawn their candidacies.
