To establish the successor of the outgoing mayor Luigi De Mossi we will go to the second round. The candidate of the Democratic Party and the Italian Left Anna Ferretti and that of the center-right Nicoletta Fabio, who are very close, should challenge each other. Definitive turnout at 63.82%
In Siena, the counting of votes after the municipal elections is slowly underway. However, it seems that to know the name of the new mayor – who will replace the outgoing Luigi De Mossi – we will have to wait for the ballot: to challenge each other, Sunday 28 and Monday 29 May, should be the candidate of the Democratic Party and the Italian Left Anna Ferretti and that of the center-right Nicoletta Fabio, who are very close. When 30 out of 50 sections were scrutinized, Fabio is at 29.50% and Ferretti is at 29.30%. Followed by Fabio Pacciani (Polo Civico, SenaCivitas, Per Siena, Sì – Covenant of Citizens, Civics in the City, Sustainable Siena, In Campo and Rewrite Siena) at 22.56%, Massimo Castagnini (Iv) at 7.64%, Emanuele Montomoli (Emanuele Montomoli Mayor) at 7.10%, Elena Boldrini (M5S) at 1.43, Alessandro Bisogni (Siena Popolare) at 1.42%, Roberto Bozzi (Azione) at 1.05%.

Mayor candidates in Siena
The name on which the center-right has focused is therefore that of Nicoletta Fabio, supported by the Brothers of Italy, the League and Forza Italia, together with the Siena lists in all senses and the Sienese Civic Movement. The situation in the centre-left is more fragmented. The Pd supported Anna Ferretti, as well as Iep! – Italian Left and With Anna Ferretti Mayor. The candidate chosen by the pentastellati was instead Elena Boldrini. The parties of the Third Pole are also separate: Italia Viva has bet on Massimo Castagnini, Action on Roberto Bozzi. Three other candidates were also in the running: Alessandro Bisogni (Siena Popolare), Emanuele Montomoli (Emanuele Montomoli Mayor) and Fabio Pacciani (Polo Civico, SenaCivitas, Per Siena, Sì – Patto dei Cittadini, Civici in Comune, Siena Sostenibile, In Campo and Rewrite Siena).
