A man passes by an electoral poster for the "Five Star" movement, in Catania, in the island of Sicily, Italy, Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012. Sicilian elections on Sunday were providing a key testing ground for Italy's political parties before national elections in the spring to replace the technical government of Premier Mario Monti. Ten candidates were vying for governor of one of Italy's most important regions in the election, which was called following the resignation of Gov. Raffaele Lombardo amid concerns that the region risked insolvency and following his indictment on charges of Mafia association. He has denied the charges. The populist Five Star Movement launched by comic Beppe Grillo is proving a threat to the traditional center-right and center-left parties. (AP Photo/Carmelo Imbesi)
