Rome, June 25 - The Democratic Party (PD) is again
reflecting on how to turn around its fortunes after suffering
another debacle in a round of runoff ballots for local elections
in many Italian cities on Sunday.
The centre-left lost traditional strongholds such as Massa,
Pisa, Siena and Terni, as well as Ivrea, near Turin, which it
had governed continuously since the Second World War.
The PD slumped to its worst-ever showing in March's general
election.
The big winner on Sunday was the centre right, with hardline
Interior Minister Matteo Salvini's League again the driving
force.
The anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), which is in
government at the national level with the League but ran alone
in the local elections, won the runoffs in Avellino and Imola,
but lost control of Ragusa.
