It's official

Italy's Supreme Court has completed its check on disputed ballots, and declared Romano Prodi the winner of the elections. Slivio Berlusconi is still sulking. But then, the stakes are rather higher for him.

The new Parliament will be sworn in next week, but a new government won't form until sometime next month, after Parliament has elected a new President. And one of the first decisions of that government is expected to be the immediate withdrawl of Italian troops from Iraq. I guess George Bush may be sulking as well...
