Milan and Naples away from Berlusconi

Barcelona / Rome (Writing and agencies) .- The right of Silvio Berlusconi has lost Milan, the economic capital of Italy, where the left has obtained 55.14% of the votes after the counting of ballots in 1,195 polling stations out of 1251, according to the website of the Ministry of Interior. The Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and his party, People of Freedom, in the absence of knowing what happens definitely with Naples, has lost the city of Milan.

Thus, the center-right candidate for mayor of Milan, Letizia Moratti, remains below its center-left opponent, Giuliano Pisapia, who in the first round got 48.1% of the vote compared to 41 , 5% of Moratti. This loss further weakens Berlusconi, already beaten by sex scandals and falling popularity ratings.

It is likely that now his disagreements with his partner in government, the Northern League, which had been critical of the electoral campaign in Milan, they go further and be insurmountable. Milan has been led by conservative mayors for nearly two decades.
