With a heavily polarized Parliament unable so far to agree on a new president for Italy, 87-year-old President Giorgio Napolitano yielded on Saturday, April 20, 2013 to pleading from political leaders to be a candidate for a second term and quickly end an impasse which has thwarted efforts to form a government in the recession-mired country. Napolitano, citing his advanced age, had repeatedly refused to be a candidate for an unprecedented second seven-year term. But he said in a statement after lobbying from the leaders that he "cannot help but take on the responsibility toward the nation." (AP Photo/Markus Schreiber, File)
