Italian Democratic party leader Pierluigi Bersani claps his hands as he attends the first parliament session to elect the lower chamber president in Rome, Friday, March 15, 2013. Italy's newly elected Parliament was heading toward political gridlock as it meets for the first time after inconclusive elections gave no party a clear victory.
