'Bunga Bunga Movement' among parties in European elections

Fourteen lists of candidates in northwest constituency

(ANSA) - Milan, April 16 - As many as 14 slates of candidates have registered to contest the European Parliament elections in Italy's northwest constituency including a self-styled "Bunga Bunga Movement", officials said Wednesday.
    The ruling center-left Democratic Party's list is led by Alessio Mosca, while the opposition center-right Forza Italia's list will be spearheaded by Giovanni Toti, in competition with candidates from the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and the anti-immigrant Northern League.
    The slates in the contest also include the New Centre Right, whose list is led by Transport Minister Maurizio Lupi and includes Milan provincial head Guido Podestà.
    The rightist FdI party candidates include Alberto Torregiani, son of a jeweller, Pierluigi Torregiani, who was murdered during Italy's turbulent "Years of Lead".
    Also a candidate, for the 'Io cambio' (I change) party is Davide Vannoni, creator of the discredited Stamina stem-cell therapy.
    Candidates for the Bunga Bunga Movement, named after the wild sex parties reputedly enjoyed by former premier Silvio Berlusconi, are competing also with hopefuls from a pensioners' party.
