Rome, 2021 municipal elections: Gualtieri trembles and Letta prays

We are moving towards the ballot, in Rome, between Enrico Michetti and Roberto Gualtieri, while third and fourth place will be played by the outgoing mayor Virginia Raggi and Carlo Calenda. The picture that emerges from the Roman vote is therefore this, with a recovery of Gualteri in the course of the afternoon when the exit-pols gave him almost paired with Raggi. At 8 pm the situation is clearer, the numbers seem to have realigned. So much so that, at 8 pm, Gualtieri spoke like this: «We are very satisfied because we are in the ballot. Now we will commit ourselves with great determination in these two weeks, turning to all the Roman women and Romans to give Rome a government at the level of a great European capital ». He said this by speaking from the electoral committee in via del Portonaccio in the capital, greeted by applause and shouts (“Roberto mayor”). Gualtieri then added: «We are very satisfied because we are in the ballot. We will turn to all Roman women and Romans to give Rome a government worthy of a great capital ». And then: «We are very satisfied. We are in the ballot and we are confident and optimistic ».

Projections and results: the data minute by minute

Administrative, Sorgi: “To win in Rome the center-right must make Michetti disappear for 15 days”

So much so that Letta made it known: «Rome will have a great mayor. Roberto Gualtieri made a great result ». Enrico Letta said this during the Mentana Marathon on La7, commenting on the results of the supplementary and administrative.

Towards the second round
Gualtieri, therefore, has made it known that he will not ask for an agreement with the grillini for the second round, because he does not want to create tensions with an M5s management team, Conte in the lead, which has bet its cards on the Rays. He will therefore make an all-out appeal, hoping to intercept the outgoing votes of the 5 stars and prevent them from ending up in abstention. But he will have another former center-left minister as a thorn in his side. Carlo Calenda will ask the Democratic Party if he wants a semblance with his reformist list, as long as he drops the 5 stars. And this will put Gualtieri in crisis, who does not intend to publicly disavow a movement, which in any case is part of a path started by Letta to build a new center-left for politics.

Communal Rome, the first exit polls come out: applause to the committee of Gualtieri

Gualtieri serves both electoral bases, center and grillini. And Letta would need a highly symbolic victory in Rome for a candidate also voted by the pentastellato electorate. Also to consolidate his leadership and to count more in the Draghi government.

Francesco Olivo: “Disappointment in Michetti’s committee in Rome, they hoped for a wider advantage”

Francesca Schianchi: “Pd and 5 Stars win if united, it seems to have returned to bipolarism”
