(ANSA) – Rome, October 5 – Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno on
Friday warned against presenting a list for the centre-right
People of Freedom (PdL) party of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi in
Rome in forthcoming political and administrative elections.
"It would be inopportune to run with a PdL list, at least
in Rome," said the former neofascist, himself a representative
of PdL.
"There are negative signals in Lazio in particular and so
it is necessary to run with a situation that has been renewed,"
continued Alemanno in reference to the state of disarray within
his party largely as a result of a recent scandal involving
Franco Fiorito, the former PdL caucus leader in the Lazio
regional council, who is under investigation for suspected
embezzlement of party funds.
The mayor said the main hypothesis "remains refounding the
PdL as a new political party".
He added that a further option would be to divide the party
up geographically and floated the idea of a "civic list for the
centre-south".
Italians are due to go to the polls to elect a new
parliament in spring next year, when Romans will also be called
to elect a new city council.
Residents of Lazio also have to go to the polls to elect a
new regional council following the dissolution of the old
assembly as a result of the scandal that led to the resignation
of the PdL's Renata Polverini as Lazio governor last week.
However no time-frame has been set for this vote.
