Civic Revolution party led by anti-mafia prosecutor folds


Rome, May 2 - Italy's left-wing Civic Revolution
party led by former anti-Mafia prosecutor Antonio Ingroia will
fold after performing poorly in February's general elections,
its founders said in a statement on Thursday.
''The people who created Civic Revolution have unanimously
decided to consider this experience over,'' said a statement by
the party, which was founded in December and failed to win a
seat in parliament.
''The unsatisfactory result at last February's political
elections have induced members to a deep reflection on the new
political phase''.
Prior to running for elected office, Ingroia served as an
anti-Mafia public prosecutor in Palermo and then briefly as head
of a UN project on narcotraffic in Guatemala.
His decision to go into politics sparked controversy
related to allegations of political bias within some parts of
the judiciary.
Ingroia was appointed deputy prosecutor in the northwestern
city of Aosta after the election.
Thursday's statement was signed by Ingroia and leading
members of the dissolving party, including Naples Mayor Luigi De
Magistris and the founder of the Italy of Values Party, Antonio
Di Pietro, both former public prosecutors.
