M5S publishes list of election candidates

Conte to lead ticket in four Italian regions

(ANSA) - ROME, AUG 19 - The populist 5-Star Movement (M5S) on Friday published its list of candidates for the September 25 general election.
    The candidates were approved in a record high vote in an online poll of M5S members earlier this week.
    The list also includes a 15-strong list of 'blocked' candidates aiming for safer seats, drawn up by party leader and ex-premier Giuseppe Conte.
    Conte will lead the M5S ticket in four Italian regions: Lombardy 1 (in two seats), Campania 1 (first constituency), Puglia 1 and Sicily 1 (first constituency).
    M5S House candidates include former Turin mayor Chiara Appendino, former national anti-mafia prosecutor Federico Cafiero de Raho, and former environment minister Andrea Costa.
    Its Senate candidates include outgoing Farm Minister Stefano Patuanelli, Senate Whip Ettore Licheri, former Palermo prosecutor Roberto Scarpinato and another party bigwig, Senator Mario Turco. (ANSA).
