Via the BBC: Italian PM survives Senate vote

The narrow victory – by 162-157 – came a week after senators defeated Mr Prodi on his foreign policy, prompting the centre-left government to stand down.

President Giorgio Napolitano had asked him to stay on and put his cabinet to a confidence vote in parliament.

On Friday, the prime minister will face another confidence vote in lower house where he has comfortable majority.

“I am very satisfied, now we’ll go to the lower house,” Mr Prodi told reporters after Wednesday’s vote.


Analysts say Mr Prodi still faces a big challenge, and with only a one seat majority in the Senate remains as vulnerable as ever.

You know you are an institutions geek when you think all of this is cool to watch.
