Former Premier Prodi Wins Italian Primary, Will Face Berlusconi in Next Year’s Election

By ALESSANDRA RIZZO

Former Italian premier Romano Prodi won a sweeping victory in a nationwide primary, according to near-final results released Monday, and will challenge conservative Premier Silvio Berlusconi in next year’s election.

The results showed Prodi, the center-left candidate who also is a former European Commission president, won 74.4 percent of the vote. More than 99 percent of votes have been tabulated.

Prodi’s widely expected victory set the stage for a run against Berlusconi, who is likely to remain at the helm of the conservatives for the mid-2006 vote. The two faced each other in an election 10 years ago, which Prodi won.

Berlusconi returned to power in 2001 parliamentary elections.

"This is just the appetizer. Italians will hand him (Berlusconi) the rest at the elections," Piero Fassino, the secretary of the largest center-left party, said.

The election must be held by next spring. No date has been set.

The closest of Prodi’s six opponents in Sunday’s primary Italy’s first held nationwide was veteran hard-line communist Fausto Bertinotti, who won 14.6 percent of the vote.

Prodi has said he would replace Italian troops in Iraq with a civilian force if his coalition wins next year’s election. Italians were largely opposed to the war in Iraq and to Berlusconi’s decision to send some 3,000 troops after the ouster of Saddam Hussein in 2003 to help with reconstruction.

The government is gradually pulling some of its contingent out of Iraq.

The primary drew more than 4 million voters to the polls, organizers said. The higher-than-expected turnout gave Prodi a strong endorsement ahead of the elections.

"I’m euphoric," the normally restrained Prodi said, adding the turnout was "beyond our every dream."

He described the high turnout as a vote of protest against policies enacted by Berlusconi’s conservative government especially a new electoral law recently rushed through Parliament and bitterly contested by the opposition.

"If over 4 million people go to the polls it means there’s a great desire for change," Prodi said Monday.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
