Rome’s first woman mayor to run for second term

Rome mayor Virginia Raggi, from 5-Star Movement, has announced plans to run for a second term, hoping to steal a march on rivals in a long campaign for next year’s vote, Reuters reported.

Raggi, 42, became the Eternal City’s first woman mayor when elected in 2016, in a major breakthrough for 5-Star ahead of national polls two years later when it won almost twice as many votes as its nearest rival.
