Last year's election in Molise region rejected by courts (ANSA) - Campobasso, October 29 - Results from the 2011 elections in Italy's southern region of Molise have been cancelled and new elections ordered, authorities announced Monday.

The Council of State, Italy's highest administrative court, upheld a ruling earlier this year by Molise's Regional Administrative Court (TAR).

It had invalidated the region's centre-right government's win in October 2011.

Defeated centre-left candidate Paolo Frattura alleged irregularities in that vote count.
