Italy PM Monti resigns, elections likely in February

Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti tendered his resignation to President Giorgio Napolitano today, the president's office said, paving the way for national elections in February.

Napolitano is expected to dissolve parliament in the next few days and has already indicated that the most likely date for the election is Feb. 24.

He will begin consultations with political leaders tomorrow to discuss the next steps, the statement said, and in the meantime he asked Monti to continue in a caretaker capacity.

Monti handed in his resignation during a brief meeting at the president's palace, shortly after parliament approved his government's 2013 budget.
