Brugnaro re-elected Venice mayor

Centre-right also ahead in Arezzo and Matera

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 22 - Luigi Brugnaro looks set to be re-elected mayor of Venice in the first round of voting after an Opinio Italia projection put him on 53.3% following the start of the ballot count, above the 50% threshold needed to avoid a run-off.
    Venice was among 15 provincial capitals that held elections on Sunday and Monday, when a Constitutional election on cutting the number of parliamentarians was also held along with elections in seven regions.
    The centre-right candidate in Arezzo, Alessandro Ghinelli, was also projected to make the 50% threshold as was the centre left's Franco Ianeselli in Trento.
    The centre-right candidate was ahead in Matera too, but seemingly not by a big enough margin to win in the first round.
    The contests in Reggio Calabria and Bolzano were tight. (ANSA).
