Lawmakers applaud the election of Italy's new President Sergio Mattarella, at the end of a voting session for the election of the new Italian President, at the lower chamber, in Rome, Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015. Italian lawmakers have elected Constitutional Court justice Sergio Mattarella on the third day of voting. Mattarella's victory was clinched Saturday when he amassed 505 votes — a simple majority — with the count incomplete. Renzi had pushed hard for Mattarella's election, and some of Renzi's rebellious Democrats had protested that the premier had imposed his choice on them. Mattarella, 73, with Christian Democrat roots, is considered to be above the political fray. (AP Photo/Andrew Medichini)
