Berlusconi back in power

Today Mr Renzi’s Government made some substantial progress in the proceedings to approve the new electoral law… but only thanks to Mr Berlusconi’s votes, since about 30 senators of Mr Renzi’s Democratic Party had refused to vote the Government proposal.

The de facto formation of a new majority in Parliament was signaled by the opposition, but also by Mr Berlusconi’s party, with Senate leader Paolo Romani declaring that “the majority is no more self-sustaining without us”.

Mr Berlusconi is now de facto a partner in the Government. In Italy, people say that sometimes “what is thrown out trough the main door comes back by the window”.
