Veltroni says won't run for re-election to parliament

(ANSA) - Rome, October 15 - Walter Veltroni, former secretary of Italy's Democratic Party, says he will not run for re-election to Italy's Parliament. Veltroni, who is also a former mayor of Rome, added that he doesn't intend to leave politics entirely. "I will continue to make policy, to engage in that which I have always believed in".
