Elections 2021, the results: center-left wins in Milan, Naples, Bologna. We go to the ballot in Turin, Rome and Trieste. How did it go in the other 13 capitals, from Novara to Varese
The center left wins in the first round a Milan, Naples And Bologna. And prepares for the ballot a Rome And Turin, where the M5s loses the leadership of the two administrations. The big cities mark a clear victory for the Democratic Party, with the confirmation of Beppe Sala and the positive verification of the axis with the Five Stars that marks the plebiscites of Gaetano Manfredi And Matteo Lepore. Calabria remains in the center-right, where Roberto Occhiuto clearly beat the candidate Pd-M5s Amalia Bruni, third Luigi De Magistris. Considering all 19 provincial capitals, however, the confirmation of the balance between center-right and center-left appears plastic. The Democratic Party will also remain at the helm of Salerno, Ravenna And Rimini. While Lega, Fratelli d’Italia and Forza Italia are confirmed a Grosseto, Novara, Pordenone and maybe Benevento. We will go to the ballot in two provincial capitals that were led by the center-right (Trieste And Savona, where the Democratic Party will have an advantage) and at least in one where the outgoing junta was dem (Varese). Still in the balance Latin, where the center-right can do it in the first round, while a Isernia, Caserta And Cosenza the counting continues slowly. On balance and with 4 cities still not defined: the center-left wins in 6 capitals, the center-right in 4 (and perhaps in Latina) in addition to the Regionals in Calabria.
The first results allow us to already make some considerations on the tightness of the individual coalitions. The first aspect concerns the Democratic party: the horizon looks very good for the dem, with three victories in the first round. But not only: the Democratic Party in the main centers is first party. Also important is the proof of the agreement with the 5 stars of Giuseppe Conte: the Giallorossi, for the first time since the fall of theExecutive Count 2, they showed up in the elections and where they tested the alliance they brought home important signals. The eyes were indeed on Naples: the candidate Gaetano Manfredi, former minister of Pd-M5s government, wins in the first round with a very clear result. It will now be fundamental to understand what happens in Rome, where instead Virginia Raggi she wanted to go alone and the 5 stars here were opposed to any deal with the dem. The picture is black instead for the center-right: it will be crucial to understand the balances within the coalition, but the fact remains that the right in the big centers only wins where it was taken for granted that it happened (to the Regionals in Calabria). The coalition, for example, is also doing badly a Trieste: here the candidate of the center-right Roberto Dipiazza is ahead, but you will still have to go to ballot.

MILAN – First round win for Giuseppe Sala with a percentage that, until recently, seemed anything but obvious.

In particular on the right, the League remains of very little in front of FdI with 10.8% against 9.9: the overtaking feared by the Carroccio, in favor of the Brothers of Italy, could vanish. A Milan the electoral campaign was little heard and characterized above all by the quarrels between allies on the right (Meloni and Salvini managed to never make an event together between last-minute disputes and forfeits). Just the lack of enthusiasm had an effect onturnout: the lowest ever. The candidate M5s Layla Pavone it stops at 2.76% – while the M5s list is at 2.86% – and for now it is behind Gianluigi Paragone which collects 3%.

There is still a contention for third place Carlo Calenda, which for now is at 18.4%.
