Rome, October 26 - Alessandra Mussolini, the
granddaughter of Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, confirmed
Friday she would run in primaries to be the centre-right People
of Freedom (PdL) party's premier candidate after Silvio
Berlusconi said he would not run in next year's elections.
Mussolini, 50, a former model with a neofascist past, said
her platform would be aimed at improving conditions for children
and mothers who "live a hellish life" while parliament "doesn't
give much of a hoot about them, by and large".
The announcement came two days before the anniversary of
her grandfather's 1922 March on Rome which set the stage for his
20-year rule.
PdL Secretary Angelino Alfano, 42, is favourite to pick up
the 76-year-old Berlusconi's mantle in mid-December primaries
with the declared aim of keeping the centre left out of power.
The main centre-left force, the Democratic Party (PD), is
currently polling around 27% to the PdL's third-placed 15% with
comic Beppe Grillo's Five-Star anti-establishment movement
second with 20%.
Many pundits see PD leader Pier Luigi Bersani, 61, as
likely to carry on from technocrat Mario Monti who took over
from Berlusconi at the height of the euro crisis almost a year
ago.
But Bersani is facing a strong challenge in next month's PD
primaries from Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi, 37.
