    14 April 2008

    A defeated Left tries to recompose In Italy, the whole left spectrum from communists to greens has lost political representation in the space of one election. What are the lessons that can be learnt from this defeat and how can the left rise again, asks Paolo Gerbaudo Berlusconi's victory, the disastrous results for the rainbow left - 'a new party born old' - and the increased number of no-voters in this election present new yet anticipated challenges for the radical left in Italy.

However, the issue is not that straightforward given that in the Netherlands no single party has an absolute majority and a coalition government has to be formed.
