Rome, February 26 - Northern League leader Roberto Maroni is leading in the Lombardy regional elections for governor, polls taken by state broadcaster Rai said on Tuesday. Maroni, whose party is allied with Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom party (PdL) in national elections, so far has 43.3% of the votes while center-left candidate Umberto Ambrosoli has 35.6%. Neither of the two candidates have the 50% of votes needed to claim victory in the first round, making a run-off likely in two weeks.
