Administrative tests for parties, and challenge between allies


For Pd general rehearsal of the agreement with 5s. Salvini-Meloni, fight for the last vote - THE SPECIAL ON VOTING [ -dautunno_b29f5be3-6cc1-46d3-bfb6-cb149a29eea3.html] (ANSA)

A test between the sides and within the sides, between leaders, old and new, of opposing parties but also among allied ones.

If the administrative elections of 3 and 4 October are

unlikely to have an impact on the Draghi government

, they will be a national test to verify the health of the parties in view of the 2023 policies and the balance of power in view of the election of the new president of the Republic. .


The secretary of the Democratic Party Enrico Letta

, who will also verify his personal consent in the Siena seat, makes no secret of the fact that

the vote will be "the general rehearsal" of the alliance with M5s


Underground but even more aggressive is the match played in the center-right

between Matteo Salvini and Giorgia Meloni

: the list votes of the Lega and Fdi will weigh in the challenge for the premiership to politics.

For this reason, the leaders are beating up and down Italy with a frenetic pace except Silvio Berlusconi, on whom the state of health requires caution, and Matteo Renzi who, even if at the first electoral baptism for Iv, preferred the low profile.

Pd and M5s run together, as well as in Calabria, in Bologna and Naples as regards the regional capitals

, in 5 provincial capitals (Varese, Pordenone, Ravenna, Grosseto and Isernia) out of 14, and in 27 municipalities over 15 thousand inhabitants out of 97.

Letta and Conte declare that they are in love and well together, but

mutual support in the ballots in the cities where the Pd and M5s went apart in the first round will greatly influence the relationships


Eyes therefore focused

above all on Rome and Turin

, where 5 years ago the pentastellati made the bang with Virginia Raggi and Chiara Appendino. It is unlikely that the encore will succeed in an election that seems to return to the traditional bipolar scheme, center-left against center-right. And Giuseppe Conte himself, recently crowned M5s leader, puts his hands in front of him explaining that "this is the time for sowing".

A very cross game within the center-right, united everywhere, except Spoleto, on a territorial level but divided in the government with Lega and Fi in the majority and Fdi fiercely in opposition. Salvini, who has given a national dimension to the League, aims to confirm his and the party's primacy within the coalition also to silence some internal discontent that has emerged on the issue of vaccines and the green pass. Giorgia Meloni, which the polls of the last period have seen grow exponentially, is trying to root Fdi also in the north, a traditional fiefdom of Fi and the Lega, and consolidate its weight in the center-south.

In this last part of the electoral campaign,

there is above all a slice of voters courted by all: the undecided

, estimated at around 40 percent, especially in large cities and in Calabria.

The President of the Chamber Roberto Fico also spends his time from Naples, arguing that "voting is an important act through which a person can choose and have his say, so abstention is always a danger".

An appeal that all leaders will intensify in the last few days, hoping to overturn predictions and consolidate consensus.
