In Italian municipal elections, “the revenge of the left”

Final score: 7 to 5. A short victory, but enough to make the progressive daily exult The Republic, which, this Tuesday, June 25, congratulates itself on its first page: “the revenge of the left”. On Sunday June 23 and Monday June 24, citizens of several large Italian cities went to the polls to elect their mayor in the second round of municipal elections. Result: candidates supported by the left won 7 out of 5 department capital cities, underlines the center-left media.

Better, “the candidates supported by the Democratic Party win in the five regional capitals affected by this vote: Florence, Bari, Potenza, Campobasso and Perugia, and even six, if we consider Cagliari, where the victory even took place in the first round, gets excited The Republic. If we take into account all the cities that voted, the center right went from 12 to 10 mayors, while the center left went from 13 to 17 mayors.”

“The left only knows how to win in the cities”

A victory, certainly, a “revenge”, perhaps, if we look at Meloni’s excellent result at the Europeans. Realistically, the progressive daily nevertheless closes its reasoning with a more nuanced consideration:
