Final rush for the ballots in Rome, Turin and Trieste

The center-right tries to recover, the Democratic Party is chasing 5S votes THE SPECIAL BALLOTTAGES [https://www.ansa.it/sito/notizie/politica/2021/10/14/elezioni-2021-domenica-i-ballottaggi-occhi -puntati-on-rome-turin-and-trieste_48a45d9a-8f24-4b58-9a32-a2c8f09c0871.html] (ANSA)



Last day of the election campaign for the ballots.

Leaders in the field in the cities to vote.

In Rome, Turin, Trieste and in other 7 provincial capitals the challenges for the mayors not assigned in the first round.

The center-right seeks redemption after the defeat from 3-4 October, the Democratic Party is hunting for the votes of the M5s. 

 Enrico Letta is already looking forward to the victory: "Our effort is to ensure that" in the ballots "Gualtieri in Rome and Lo Russo in Turin win. If that were the case it would be a triumph", he says early in the morning. In particular, the vote of the capital will be a useful test to verify if the voters of that "broad field" so much invoked by the dem actually converge on the same candidate. On the opposite front, the center-right is precisely in the Eternal City that seeks redemption by regrouping under the banner of "pacification".


    Meanwhile, to the great satisfaction of the Jewish Community of Rome, the Authority for Guarantees in Communications opens an investigation against Radio Radio, "regarding some statements concerning Jews and Nazi-Fascism made during some broadcasts". The radio station, which makes it known that "it's all a misunderstanding", is the one in which the current candidate for mayor of the center-right Enrico Michetti usually intervened, overwhelmed by the controversy in recent days for a controversial article on the Shoah published in 2020 on the site of the issuer.


    Whatever happens, the challenge will go on until the last useful moment, between meetings, face to face (the most recent on Skytg24) and closure of the electoral campaign. Tomorrow, Friday 15 October, the center-left candidate will call his supporters in Piazza del Popolo from 5 pm where the elected mayor of Naples Gaetano Manfredi should also appear, symbol of the success of the Giallorossi axis in the administrative offices. The competitor Enrico Michetti will start an hour later in Campo dei Fiori with Giorgia Meloni and in connection Matteo Salvini and Silvio Berlusconi.


    To divide them, when the electoral silence has already begun, there will also be the square on Saturday called by the unions in response to the assault on the CGIL a week ago: Gualtieri will be there, Michetti will not. 

Turin 'central challenge', leader in the field for the city


In Turin, like Rome, the central challenge of the ballots, the tension rises a few days after the vote. The center-left candidate Stefano Lo Russo is ahead with 43.6%, that of the center-right Paolo Damilano is 38.9% behind, but as the Fdi leader Giorgia Meloni recalled, in the city next to Damilano, "the ballot is another thing, for which the starting data are reset and you start all over again ". Having abandoned any Savoy fair play, the two opponents are now focusing on a more aggressive campaign. The center-right believes in the comeback, and will also be strengthened by the support coming from the planned visit under the Mole of Lega leader Matteo Salvini. "We turn - said Meloni today - to everyone: to the many who did not go to vote, particularly in the suburbs, to that part of theopposing electorate that is perhaps disappointed by a left that pretended to be close to the weakest and instead has started to make the majorette of the strong powers, and also to that part of the 5-star electorate that is not there to be the vassal of the Democratic Party ". In the center-left, where the Pd secretary Enrico Letta will pull the final sprint for Lo Russo, he trusts in more than 4 points of advantage in the first round, knowing that he can also count on the voters of the left-wing mayoral candidate Angelo d'Orsi, which has already given its public endorsement. There have been no similarities, so the votes of the 5-star Movement will be an unknown factor. From the statements of recent days they would not seem directed towards the center-right, but many pentastellated voters could choose to stay at home .
