The candidates of the municipal elections on the 9th of next June are expected to be thrown into the battle for a position in the offices of the local government. After the recent local government reform and then the map as it has been shaped, the party machines are on fire to support and promote their own candidates to add a possible victory to their party trophy case. Nevertheless, the case of local elections has its own particularities, as traditionally the parties seem to be unable to fully determine the outcome, mainly due to the local character and personality of the candidates. At the present stage, in fact, where in recent years there seems to be an obvious disdain of the citizens towards the party mechanisms, the result of the upcoming municipal elections will be of great interest.
