Italia, Rome
20 June, 2016 a las 03:50 GMT +00:00 · Publicado

Five Star Movement's (M5S) candidate Virginia Raggi became the first ever female mayor of Rome on Monday morning. In a press conference following her victory Raggi stated “It’s a fundamental historical moment, it marks a turning point. For the first time, a woman became the mayor of Rome."

Upon exiting the press conference Raggi was mobbed by hundreds of supporters. The new mayor took to the microphone again, vowing to bring together “all the citizens of Rome.”

Raggi, a 37-year-old lawyer by trade, is on course to win two-thirds of the vote, inflicting a heavy defeat on the the ruling Democratic Party’s (PD) candidate, Roberto Giachetti.

The Five Star Movement is an anti-establishment party, which has grown to become one of Italy's largest parties according to some polls. It promises a referendum on the Euro and a digital democracy, giving voters a direct say in policies.
