The grand ball of the Quirinale begins on January 24
Vita gazette – There is still dense fog on the negotiations between political forces, but now there is a certainty: The first vote of Parliament in joint session will be held on January 24, a Monday, at 3 pm to elect Sergio Mattarella’s successor at the Quirinale.
The names and reconciliations of the presidential candidates, which is a symbolic task and whose term is limited to 7 years, have not yet been clarified, except for Prime Minister Berlusconi. In the voting that begins on Monday, January 24, the person who gets two-thirds of the votes in three rounds of voting will become president. In the event of a positive outcome of the fourth ballot, whoever obtains more than half of the votes will be elected as the new President.
