Italian cardinal raps politicians' failure to form new government
April 17, 2013
The president of the Italian bishops' conference has scolded the nation's political leaders for their failure to resolve a stalemate that has blocked the formation of a new government.
"Politicians need to put an end to all further delay," said Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco of Genoa. After weeks of gridlock following elections in February, the Italian people "can't take any more," he said.
