Rome, November 20 - Italian politician Alessandra
Mussolini, granddaughter of Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini,
on Tuesday said she would not run in primaries being organized
by the center-right People of Freedom (Pdl) party.
Mussolini said that the contest for leadership of the
party, founded by former premier Silvio Berlusconi, was "the
biggest mistake which could be committed on the eve of an
electoral campaign".
The PdL is set to hold primaries to choose its premier
candidate next month.
National elections are expected to be held sometime early
next spring.
The politician said she saw the primary process as a
"squalid, internal settling of scores".
Under current electoral laws, the leader of the party which
wins national elections is likely to be appointed premier by
Italy's president.
Berlusconi has already said he will sit out elections.
"At this point Berlusconi was right regarding this
masochistic political instrument," Mussolini told ANSA. "I shall
honor myself by not participating".
Berlusconi has publicly skirmished with the current party
secretary, Angelino Alfano - nominated by Berlusconi himself -
over the usefulness of the party primaries.
Alfano has insisted that the primaries take place.
Mussolini also criticized as "pathetic" those politicians
in the PdL who now speak out against the government of Premier
Mario Monti despite having supported it so far.
