SEOUL, Feb 26 (Reuters) - Seoul shares slipped for a second day on Tuesday as investors braced for prolonged political uncertainty after an election in Italy where no group won enough votes to form a government.

The Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) fell 0.5 percent to close at 2,000.01 points, the lowest in a week.

Samsung Life Insurance, the country's top insurer, fell 3.3 percent. (Reporting by Somang Yang; Editing by Jacqueline Wong)
