Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Prodi hails Italy poll 'victory'

An official projection shows a slim majority in the Senate - the upper house - for Mr Prodi's bloc.

But Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's coalition is disputing the results and refusing to concede defeat.

An aide to Mr Berlusconi demanded a "scrupulous" investigation into why an estimated 500,000 ballots were annulled.

Final confirmation of the result will hinge on results from Italian voters living abroad.

I sure don't want to jinx this, but all's I can say is I sure hope this isn't another Gore-Bush scenario. Someone tell me about how re-counts work in Italy?
