BBC NEWS | Europe | Prodi to speak on cabinet crisis
Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi is set to address parliament after the departure of an ally threatened to topple his fragile ruling coalition.

Speaker Fausto Bertinotti said the centre-left PM had asked to address the lower house, the Chamber of Deputies, on the "general political situation".

There had been speculation he would resign on Monday after a former ally ruled out rejoining the government.

Clemente Mastella, the former justice minister, called for an early election.
