Center-left PD remains favorite in election polls


Rome, November 16 - An opinion poll released
Friday by the SWG statistics institute on behalf of Italian
state broadcaster RAI showed that the main centre-left
Democratic Party (PD) remains the favorite for the next
parliamentary elections, having gained 0.2% since last week.
The second biggest group, comedian Beppe Grillo's
anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S), lost 0.5% in the
polls, while the anti-graft Italy of Values (IdV) party also
dropped 0.5% following the arrest of the former caucus head in
Lazio on Tuesday.
Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL)
party gained 0.3% in the polls.
The survey was conducted by phone and email November 12-15,
said the statistics institute.
Those surveyed said that they did not believe that the
center-left PD would reach the necessary percentage to have a
ruling majority outlined by the proposed electoral reform bill
currently before parliament if it passed.
Under the rule, if the votes in favor of the leading
alliance reach 42.5%, an additional 12.5% would be granted to
achieve a 55% majority.
In the case of a PD coalition with the centrist UDC party
led by Pier Ferdinando Casini, the two together could surpass
40%, said the poll.
