Rome, June 10 - Premier Enrico Letta said Monday
that he was alarmed by the high rate of abstention in run-off
votes in many Italian towns and cities, including Rome and 10
provincial capitals.
"It's an alarming signal," said Letta. "I htink everyone
has to reflect on this".
The interior ministry said less than half of eligible
voters bothered to take part in the run-offs, 48.5%.
This is down from 59.7% in the first round, which was
already a big drop on the equivalent local elections in 2008.
In Rome less than half of the people eligible, 44.93%, took
part in the run-off that saw centre-left candidate Ignazio
Marino prevail after just 52.81% took part in the first round.
