CNN said:"There are big discrepancies and all these discrepancies have to be looked at and checked, so I don't think that these could be called the final results," Berlusconi said in a live television address on Tuesday.
The next step in the process is for Italy's highest court to certify the vote -- and with about a million disputed ballots in the tight race, Berlusconi's allies have demanded a scrupulous check of the counting.
Lurker said:just playing devil's advocate here, but isn't Berlusconi doing what Gore and Kerry should have done when faced with the same thing...TWICE?
The other guy pulled a Fox News and is getting the TV to declare him the popular winner before the votes are being counted. It's only prudent that Sylvio presses for a recount.
That being said, Berlusconi is slime, so I wouldn't trust him or his people to finalize the vote counts, but I gotta admit he's doing the right thing by not just giving up based on TV reports. That was really fucking weak of Kerry 2 years ago.
