Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
By institutional routine and praxis. Consult parties, put together a program, choose a team that satisifies coalition member arithematic, present yourself in parliament and get a majority vote. The only provision to be nominated Council president is that the president of the republic nominates you. he can nominate anybody- so long as they are Italian and over 26 years of age. Council Presidents are never elected nor do they have to be elected. That went out with Mussolini. Berlusconi would exploit it in elections and made it part of one of his electoral reforms, but it was only political propaganda that was in no ways legally binding. Italians have never legally voted for a Council President.
