Over one third Italians say Bersani should take a step back
More than half centre-left supporters back alliance with M5S15 March, 14:43
This figure rises to 66% among centre-left voters. So far attempts by the PD to reach a government agreement with M5S have proved elusive. Some 13% of Italians support an alliance between PD and the centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi. The same percentage instead sees new elections as the only answer to the present deadlock.
