A torn electoral poster shows center-right coalition leader Silvio Berlusconi in Rome, Monday, Feb. 25, 2013. Italy's crucial elections appear to be heading toward gridlock, initial results show, with the center-left forces of Pier Luigi Bersani headed toward victory in the lower house of Parliament and the camp of former premier Silvio Berlusconi gaining the upper hand in the equally powerful Senate. The upstart protest campaign of comic-turned-politician Beppe Grillo was also showing a stunningly strong result in both houses of the legislature, confirming its surprise role as a force in Italian politics.
