Rome:  Voting started in Italy's election on Sunday, with former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi's alliance of centre-right parties expected to win most seats but fall short of a parliamentary majority.

Pollsters say the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement should emerge as the largest single party, while the ruling centre-left Democratic Party (PD) is seen coming third.

Some 50.7 million Italians are eligible to vote and polling booths will remain open until 11.00 p.m. (2200 GMT). Local media will publish exit polls immediately afterwards, but it might take many hours before the full result emerges.
