Italy's centre left stops slide in polls


Rome, February 5 - Pier Luigi Bersani's centre-left
coalition stopped its slide in the opinion polls on Tuesday when
it increased its lead over ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's
centre-right alliance ahead of the February 24-25 vote in Italy.
The centre left, led by Bersani's Democratic Party (PD),
saw its lead over the centre right rise to 5.5% in the latest
SWG poll, 0.5% higher than in the previous survey on Friday.
The centre left had 33.6% of the projected vote, compared
to 32.8% on Friday.
Support for Berlusconi's alliance also increased, but by
less, gaining 0.3% to reach 28.1%.
The centre left's once mighty advantage in the polls has
been whittled down in recent weeks after Berlusconi embarked on
a media blitz.
The centre-left coalition also saw its standing in the
polls fall last week following a derivatives scandal at the
Monte dei Paschi di Siena bank, which has historic ties to the
The anti-establishment Five Star Movement (MS5) of comedian
Beppe Grillo was steady in third place at 18% in Tuesday's poll.
The centrist coalition headed by outgoing Premier Mario
Monti dropped 0.9% with 13.3% of projected votes.
Civil Revolution, a new party led by Palermo anti-Mafia
magistrate Antonio Ingroia, fell 0.1% to 4.9%, still above
the 4% threshold needed in order to qualify for seats.
