Sicilians elect mayors in Siracusa, Ragusa, Messina


Palermo, June 24 - Three provincial capitals up for
grabs in Sicily on Monday elected new mayors in a runoff vote.
Center-left candidate Giancarlo Garozzo became the new
mayor of Siracusa with 53.3% of the vote against 46.7% for
Ezechia Paolo Reale, who ran on a mixed People of Freedom (PdL)
and Civic List ticket.
In Ragusa, Federico Piccitto from the anti-establishment
5-Star Movement won the runoff with 69.4% of the vote, leaving
center-left candidate Giovanni Cosentini behind at 30.6%.
The city on the strait, Messina, elected No Bridge movement
founder Renato Accorinti, who beat out his center-left opponent
Felice Calabro' to become mayor with 52% of the vote.
Accorinti's movement fought former premier Silvio
Berlusconi's plan to build the world's longest suspension
bridge, connecting Messina to mainland Italy.
