Marino supporters gather at Campidoglio

'Democracy is dead'

(ANSA) - Rome, October 30 - Supporters of Rome Mayor Ignazio Marino gathered at the Campidoglio Friday after 25 councillors signed their resignations before a notary, marking the end of his bid to prolong his term after a U-turn on quitting over an expenses scandal.
    "Marino Mayor, We Are The Antibodies" read a banner being waved, referring to anti-corruption czar Raffaele Cantone's recent contention that Rome lacked the antibodies to fight graft.
    "Democracy is dead and the most serious responsibilities are of the Democratic Party of (Premier Matteo) Renzi," Marino's party, said two supporters.
