Florence, December 3 - Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi
said Monday that the onus was on Democratic Party (PD) leader
Pier Luigi Bersani to move on to the general election honestly
while not forgetting the minority after beating Renzi in the
centre left's primary runoff.
"The winner has the honor and the responsibility of also
representing the others, without shady deals or stonewalling,"
said Renzi in his online newsletter. "The loser must demonstrate
the ability to live in dignity and honor when the majority are
somewhere else".
Earlier Monday, Renzi rejected speculation he could split
from the Democratic Party (PD) to form his own group, promising
to "be loyal to Bersani" after collecting around 39% of the
votes cast on Sunday compared to over 60% for Bersani.
The run-up to Sunday's runoff was marred with a dispute
over whether Renzi had broken the rules for the primaries,
because a foundation linked to him took out allegedly misleading
advertising in the national press calling on people to vote.
Renzi's camp also said many people in Tuscany were not
allowed to vote on Sunday even though they should have been able
to.
But the 37-year-old, who presented himself as a moderniser,
was admitted he had made mistakes in his campaign and said
Bersani was the "clear" winner.
The general election is expected in March, 2013.
