Italian General Election Results

This is concerning, however, what is needed now in Italy is a Left Centrist coalition government formed by Mario Monti and involving Pier Bersani that is acceptable to Europe and North America and one that keeps a wide berth from Berlusconi as possible! (why do Italians vote for this man?) It is a pity that Proportional Representation as a form of election in Italy leads to such deadlocks and volatile governments

If I understand the Italian system correctly, it actually solves one problem of PR by giving a bonus to the winner to give them a majority. The real problem is having two elected chambers where the will of the people comes out differently.
