There is no enthusiasm for the next election of the 3 and 4 October. Yet there is a vote to elect the first citizens of important cities and they are also planned two by-elections to fill seats in Parliament that have remained vacant.

We vote in Rome to assign the vacant seat of the 1-11 college of the Chamber of Deputies and, again with regard to the Chamber, too the 12th seat of Tuscany which comprises Siena and province.

Single-member colleges where, to win it, just take one more vote than the opponents. The college of Rome, which it embraces neighborhoods on the outskirts ranging from Gianicolense to Trionfale and Primavalle, remained vacant after the resignation of the grillina Emanuela Del Re who was appointed special representative of the European Union for the Sahel.

In the Tuscan college, which includes Siena and 34 other municipalities of the Province, on the other hand, Pier Carlo Padoan, former Minister of Economy in the Renzi and Gentiloni governments, and current president of UniCredit, had been elected.

In Rome, for the Primavalle seat, the challenge is between the former magistrate Luca Palamara, which comes up with a list with his name, Pasquale Calzetta for Forza Italia, Antonio Cocco, treasurer of the liberals and supported by Vittorio Sgarbi and Andrea Casu, current Roman secretary of the Democratic Party.

At the last moment, the candidacy of the former Minister of Defense failed Elizabeth Trenta which had presented itself with “We New Horizons for Italy” – a list close to Italia dei Valori – hoping for support from the M5S which, however, was not there for the choice of Giuseppe Conte to support the candidate of the Democratic Party.

Many candidates in Siena, among which the secretary of the Democratic Party stands out Enrico Letta. They also run the civic for the center-right Tommaso Marrocchesi Marzi, the leader of the Communist Party Marco Rizzo, Tommaso Agostini for 3v No-vax, Elena Golini (Whirpool worker) for Power to the People, Mauro Aurigi with the Italexit movement.

Who will win? Soon to say even if in Siena the Democratic Party risks a lot with its secretary. At the same time in Rome there is the unknown of Luca Palamara who collects votes across the board especially in the Grillino electorate who at the time won the Del Re college.
