Rome, October 26 - The Italian regions of Lazio
and Lombardy, in which the regional juntas have been awash in
two separate political funds scandals in recent months,
announced on Friday that are set to hold administrative
elections between December and February.
The central Lazio region, where the capital city of Rome is
located, will hold elections between the end of January and
early February, according to sources close to the junta.
The exact election dates will be announced towards
mid-November.
Instead, the northern Italian Lombardy region, in which the
business capital of Milan is located, will hold its next
elections "on a Sunday between December 16 and January 27",
according to comments made by regional president Roberto
Formigoni to journalists.
Lazio governor Renata Polverini stepped down in September
after the regional caucus leader Franco Fiorito was arrested for
alleged embezzlement.
Lombardy governor Roberto Formigoni is under pressure to
resign after the housing commissioner of Milan's regional
government was arrested earlier this month for having allegedly
paid organized criminals to secure his elections victory.
