Official count gives Bersani healthy lead in PD vote

Rome, November 26 - Pier Luigi Bersani won fully 1,393,990 votes, or 44.9% of the total in Sunday's Democratic Party (PD) primary, according to official results released Monday. Second place went to Matteo Renzi, 38, who took 1,103,790 votes or 35.5% of the total. Bersani, PD secretary, won every region of the country except Umbria, Marche, and Tuscany, where Renzi is best known as the mayor of Florence. Since none of the candidates won a clean majority of 50%, Renzi and Bersani will face each other in a run-off next weekend to select the centre-left's candidate for the next premier of Italy.
