Bookies put Gabanelli second for Italian president

Rome, April 16 - TV presenter and investigative reporter Milena Gabanelli was second only to former centre-left premier Giuliano Amato on Italian bookies' slates to become the next president of the republic after becoming the candidate of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) on Tuesday. The journalist known for her hard-hitting reports into alleged corruption and waste of public money was quoted at 1.90 to 1 by Bet2875 against Amato's 1.80. They were followed by Franco Marini, former leader of the Italian Confederation of Workers' Trade Unions (CISL) and Senate Speaker in the 2006-2008 government of Romano Prodi, at 2.0. Prodi, from the center left, came in at 2.50, neck-and-neck with former EU commissioner Emma Bonino of the Radical Party. War-zone doctor Gino Strada, founder of the NGO Emergency who came second to Gabanelli in the M5S online poll, was quoted at 3.0.
