Italy's centre-left rules out grand coalition - paper

MILAN (Reuters) - Italy's centre-left will not form a grand coalition with Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right group after inconclusive parliamentary elections earlier this week, its leader Pier Luigi Bersani said in an interview on Friday.

"I want to spell it out clearly: the idea of a grand coalition does not exist and will never exist," Bersani told La Repubblica.
