Italian leftist leader Pier Luigi Bersani on Thursday said he had failed in his bid to form a new government following last month's inconclusive elections, leaving Italy in political limbo.

"My work in these days has not led to a positive result," Bersani said after talks with President Giorgio Napolitano who is now expected to choose a different figure to lead Italy.
