Italy's Confused Election Gets Another Twist

Friday, 28 Dec 2012 08:47 AM

ROME — Italy's already chaotic election campaign has gotten a new twist with another big personality taking part:

The country's respected national anti-Mafia prosecutor has joined ranks with the center-left Democratic Party, a big win for a party already ahead in the polls before February elections.

Prosecutor Pietro Grasso choked up as he recounted how his hand trembled a few days ago when he signed a letter asking to end his 43-year career fighting the mob.

He explained his "radical" decision to run for an as yet unknown office as wanting to leave a better country for his grandson.

Ex-Premier Silvio Berlusconi was also on front pages.

The Corriere della Sera website revealed his divorce settlement with his second wife was €3 million a month, though he gets to keep the house.
