Regarding the coming government premier, Nano implied that the present premier Fino will be the one.
Nano said after the meeting with the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for democracy, rights and work, John Shatuck, that the U.S. official had estimated the polls were held in a normal and acceptable process.
