ITALY-POLITICS-GOVERNMENT-PRESIDENT-ELECTION-VOTE

Italian Parliament ushers carry ballot boxes in the Italian Parliament on April 20, 2013 during the election of Italy's President. Italy's 87-year-old President Giorgio Napolitano said on Saturday said he would run for a second term despite earlier ruling out the prospect, following an appeal from the main parties to help defuse an increasingly tense political crisis. 'I consider it necessary to offer my availability,' Napolitano said in a statement, as bickering lawmakers prepared for a sixth round of voting in parliament that he is now expected to win by a large margin.
