Rome mayor says Berlusconi should run in party primaries

(see related story) (ANSA) - Rome, July 16 - A senior member of Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party, Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno, has said the media magnate should first run in primaries before standing to become Italian premier for the fourth time next year. Senior PdL officials said last week that plans to hold primaries to select the party's candidate to be premier have been dropped with Berlusconi set to "return to the field" of front-line politics. "The PdL should have primaries," Alemanno said in an interview in Monday's edition of Rome-based daily La Repubblica. "It would also be good for Berlusconi's relaunch. The PdL party executive should reflect on having made such a sudden U turn".
