Gualtieri ready to stand as Rome mayor

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 16 – Former economy minister Roberto
Gualtieri is ready to stand as centre-left Democratic Party (PD)
candidate for Rome mayor later this year, PD sources said
Tuesday.
    Gualtieri would be up against a field including incumbent
Virginia Raggi of the populist 5-Star Movement (M5S), a national
partner of the PD.
    The final word on Gualtieri’s candidacy is up to the PD’s new
leader, ex-premier Enrico Letta.
    Rome-born Gualtieri, 55, is a historian and academic who served
as economy minister in the second government of Prime Minister
Giuseppe Conte from 2019 until 2021.
    He previously was a member of the European Parliament from 2009
to 2019, where he chaired the influential Economic and Monetary
Affairs Committee within the Parliament from 2014 until 2019.
