Rome mayor rates herself 7.5 for first year

Raggi says she is “slowly changing the whole system” in Rome.

Rome mayor Virginia Raggi has awarded herself "7.5 out of 10" after reporters asked her how she would evaluate her first year in office.

The mayor, a member of the anti-establishment Movimento 5 Stelle movement, said that her administration is "slowly changing the whole system" but there is "still lots to do."

The mayor made her comments after a survey by Italian newspaper La Repubblica found that almost seven out of 10 Romans were dissatisfied with her performance since her election on 19 June last year.
