Berlusconi Seeks New Elections in Italy
STEVE INSKEEP, Host:
Italy's politics produced a spectacle worthy of the stage yesterday. Prime Minister Romano Prodi resigned after losing a confidence vote, and for that story we go to the BBC's David Willey.
DAVID WILLEY: President Giorgio Napolitano is expected to ask Mr. Prodi to continue as caretaker until he makes a decision on whether or not to call early elections.
INSKEEP: So that's the BBC's David Willey giving us the drama in Italy.
