First electoral test for Renzi

The next Italian Prime Minister, Mr Matteo Renzi, was accused of dodging elections, but you simply can’t do that forever.

Indeed, in Sardinia people are already voting to renew the Regional Parliament and Government, and it is feared that the showdown between Mr Renzi and Mr Letta will damage the Democratic Party candidate Michela Murgia.

Mr Berlusconi’s party will try to get a second term for the incumbent Governor Mr Ugo Cappellacci.

Once the first nucleus of the Italian State together with Piedmont, Sardinia today has pro-independence movements and is an Autonomous Region with sweeping devolved powers.
