This is generally a consequence of proportional voting. You get politicians who are beholden to the party leadership, and not to the voters, and smaller parties can hold larger parties hostage to their idealogical demands without taking responsibility for the consequences of those idealogical demands.

Hmm. Sounds like the EU propaganda machine is back in full swing ever since Berlusconi fell out of their favor. They want their appointed leader (Monti) to win, obviously.

Hasn’t Italy already had something like 600 National Elections since the end of WW II? So what’s one more?
