Centre right and centre both lose ground

Centre left stretches lead in latest poll

Rome, January 25 - The centre-left coalition led by the Democratic Party (PD) and its secretary Pier Luigi Bersani stretched its lead over the rival centre right less than five weeks before Italians were due to go to the polls to elect their new parliament, an opinion poll said Friday. The centre left stood at 34.1%, up 1.1% over the same time last week, according to the latest survey by Trieste-based pollster Swg for state broadcaster Rai. The centre-right coalition, led by the People of Freedom (PdL) party of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, lost 0.6% to come in at 26.6%. The populist and anti-establishment Five Star Movement of Genoa comedian Beppe Grillo continued its positive performance, gaining 0.4% to stand at 17.2%, the same as the PdL taken alone. The centrist coalition led by outgoing Premier Mario Monti lost 0.9% to stand at 12.8%. Civil Revolution, a new party led by Palermo anti-mafia magistrate Antonio Ingroia, remained stable at 5.4%, well above the 4% threshold needed in order to qualify for seats. photo: PD leader Bersani
