Anti-establishment candidate leads Rome mayoral race

Virginia Raggia's campaign tapped into simmering discontent over a string of corruption scandals in RomeThe anti-establishment Five Star party’s Virginia Raggi easily took the lead in the first round of the Rome mayoral race, exit polls showed, dealing a setback to Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s ruling party. It was not immediately clear who she would face in the second round, with Roberto Giachetti of Renzi’s centre-left Democratic Party (PD) and the right’s Giorgia Meloni neck-and-neck according to a Sky projection. Meloni, a candidate put up by one of several small groups that emerged from Italy’s neo-fascist movement, is being backed by the anti-immigrant Northern League, whose leader Matteo Salvini wants to unite all the right behind himself.
