Political crisis

As you have probably seen mentioned in the news Italian politics is in crisis. Since becoming the President Romano Prodi has been under pressure from the population (regarding mainly the increase in taxes) and other politicans (regarding mainly the troops in Iraq).

Giorgio Napolitano, the President of the Repubblic, has ordered a vote of trust to be carried out in the chambers. There has been a lot of talk of Prodi being forced to resign. The results of the vote should be final by next Wednesday.

A recent survey on yahoo Italia shows that the population (57%- 2218 votes) think the best thing to do to resolve the situation is to hold new elections.
