Will Benedict XVI's successor be an Italian?

settled question on option 'No'.
"The College of Cardinals which will elect Pope Benedict’s successor was skewed unfairly towards Italians when the last bunch of red-hat promotions were announced.
Italians still hold an undue proportion of votes and influence in a Church which is increasingly seen to be shifting south – away from its former Eurocentric mould.
The Pope intends to redress this imbalance by bringing more foreigners into Church governance, and increase the chances that when the white smoke goes up again to announce his successor, yet another non-Italian Pope might appear on the balcony of Saint Peter’s to the acclaim of the faithful."
