Italian elections: Silvio Berlusconi makes gains but turnout low


The Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's uneasy centre-Right coalition has wrested control of at least three regions from the opposition.

The coalition won in the southern regions of Calabria and Campania in addition to the hotly contested northern region of Piedmont in the two-day vote in 13 of Italy's 20 regions, partial results showed.
Mr Berlusconi's coalition also held on to its northern Lombardy and Veneto strongholds, bringing the total take to at least five regions.

In Piedmont, Roberto Cota of the Northern League – the anti-immigration party in Mr Berlusconi's coalition – squeaked past incumbent Mercedes Bresso.
Polling in Rome's Lazio region remained too close to call.
Vying to become Lazio's next governor are former European commissioner Emma Bonino, a libertarian standing for the centre-left Democratic Party, and Renata Polverini, head of the right-wing trade union UGL.
The left held on to seven other regions including its Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna strongholds.
Turnout was the lowest in 15 years at 64.2 per cent, eight percentage points down on the last regional vote five years ago.
Paolo Gentiloni of the opposition Democratic Party said the low turnout reflected "the problem of a political class that has no answer for the economic troubles caused by the financial crisis".
Announcing turnout figures, Interior Minister Roberto Maroni said: "We should see to it that participation is stronger in the next elections in three years."
The Ipsos polling institute had predicted a low turnout because of worries over unemployment and the perception that the Berlusconi government has done little to address Italy's worst recession since World War II.
Osvaldo Napoli, a prominent member of Berlusconi's People of Freedom party, said before the two-day vote that a turnout under 70 per cent "would penalise us".
The Northern League was an essential ally in Berlusconi's return to power in 2008, campaigning on pledges of cracking down on illegal immigration and crime, often linking the two.
