Victory in Italys general election has finally been confirmed to the centre-left coalition led by Romano Prodi, following a review of electoral returns and disputed ballot papers by the Supreme Court. Some members of the outgoing Berlusconi government are still refusing to concede defeat, however, with finance minister Giulio Tremonti claiming that further voting checks are needed. Prodi has won the election by a majority of only 24,000 votes and will come up against aggressive opposition in the Camera dei Deputati, even though, thanks to electoral reforms passed by the outgoing government, he has been awarded a workable majority of 348 deputies against the 281 deputies of the Casa della Libert coalition.
