From September 25 Italy, the EU’s third most powerful economy will have a Fascist government. Italy’s political heavyweight Silvio Berlusconi, who was the country’s prime minister for four terms, has announced that he’ll run for Senate in the snap election next month.

‘I think I’ll run for the Senate,’ Berlusconi, who now leads the centre-right party Forza Italia, told Rai Radio 1 station on Wednesday. The 85-year-old media tycoon said he was making the move after receiving pressure from so many, even outside Forza Italia, and expressed hope that it would make everyone happy.

The announcement coincided with the launch of an advertising campaign, which saw billboards with a picture of a younger-looking Berlusconi and a slogan reading, ‘Now more than ever, pick a side,’ popping up on train and subway stations across the country. Berlusconi, who is Italy’s longest-serving prime minister since Benito Mussolini was assassinated by the allies.

Italy is holding a snap election on September 25 following the collapse of the government of Mario Draghi in July, after all of the members of the ruling coalition withdrew their support for the prime minister.

Berlusconi’s Forza Italia is running in coalition with two nationalist (dubbed far-right by media), Giorgia Meloni’s Brothers of Italy, which is currently leading in the polls, and Lega Nord, led by Matteo Salvini, who was deputy PM between 2018 and 2019.

The unstoppable trio is expected to win the vote by a wide margin, which could pave the way for Giorgia Meloni, whose motto is God, country, and family, and who would become the first woman ever to head the Italian government.

When asked about this possibility, Berlusconi replied, ’We have always said that whoever has the most votes will be proposed to the head of state as the candidate-premier. If it is Giorgia Meloni, I am sure that she will prove adequate for the difficult task. Source. A DONATION FROM MICHAEL (US) PAID FOR THIS STORY.
