Populists' surge in Italy stops in voting for Italy's mayors

Among residents voting in Genoa was comic Beppe Grillo, a founder of the 5-Star Movement and its galvanizing force.

5-Star hoped to build on last year's election successes, when it took charge of Rome.

Newspaper headlines and pundits pounced on the results, saying the 5-Star might have peaked, but Grillo shot back on Monday, confidently predicting his group would bounce back. "Lots of people are happily offering analysis on the death of the M5S", he wrote on his blog.

"Convince yourself this is true so you can sleep more soundly".

Analysts said the party was punished, in part, for its poor track record in Rome, after winning elections there last summer. But its rule in the capital has been mired in controversy, denting its image, and its grassroots operations elsewhere have been snarled by internal feuding.

Northern League chief Matteo Salvini told public broadcaster RAI News24 that the real loser in Sunday's election was not Grillo, but the Democratic Party led by former premier Matteo Renzi.

The initial results of Sunday's vote will be a boost for the ruling Democratic Party and for the centre-right Forza Italia, led by Silvio Berlusconi. A run-off ballot between the two leading candidates is due on June 25.


Even in Grillo's hometown of Genoa Luca Pirondini, the 5Stars candidate, only secured 18% of the vote, lagging behind his centre-right and centre left rivals.

In the northern city of Parma, its first ever mayor, elected in 2012, is running as an independent after falling out with the party leadership previous year, and is favorite to win against rivals from the center-right and center-left as well as 5-Star.

An anti-mafia firebrand, Orlando has governed the city for 16 of the past 32 years. The 5-Stars are fielding candidates in 225 of some 1,000 races.

The anti-euro and anti-immigration M5S emerged as a major political force in 2013 and went on to score stunning local victories, including taking control of Rome and Turin a year ago. Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi's administration got off to a rocky start, dogged by transportation strikes, garbage pileups and scandals swirling around some of her appointees or aides.

However, after talks on a deal on a new electoral law collapsed on Thursday, early elections are now seen as much less likely.

Italy was due to hold elections in 2018, however, on December 6, 2016, Italy's then Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said that the country could hold snap parliamentary elections in February 2017, following the resignation of the country's Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in the wake of the government-proposed constitutional referendum.
