Democratic Party (PD) leader Pier Luigi Bersani arrives to cast his vote at a polling station in Piacenza, northern Italy December 2, 2012. The two finalists in a primary to choose the centre-left candidate for prime minister in next year's Italian elections face judgement day on Sunday in a run-off primary after a bitter campaign. The contest will decide whether Bersani, 61, or Matteo Renzi, 37, stand in national elections early next year against a still-to-be-chosen centre-right candidate to take over from Prime Minister Mario Monti.
