Italy's centre-left is short of 35 seats in the
Senate, local media reported Tuesday, after votes cast by Italians
living abroad were added to the total.
No coalition was confirmed as having secured a majority in the Senate, broadcaster SkyTG24 said. The centre-left won 123 seats, conservatives 117, the protest Five Star Movement (M5S) 54, centrists 19, minor parties 2. The majority threshold is 158.
