Berlusconi returns to parliament, to be joined by partner

Ex-premier back in Senate after being ejected in 2013

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 27 - Ex-premier and Forza Italia leader Silvio Berlusconi leader is returning to the Italian parliament after nine years and his partner, Marta Fascina, will join him among the new intake of lawmakers.
    Berlusconi won the first-past-the-post contest in Monza with over 50% of the vote to return to Senate after being ejected from Upper House in 2013 due to the application of an anti-corruption law following a tax-fraud conviction.
    The ban on public office stemming from the conviction elapsed in 2019, which enabled Berlusconi to run for the European Parliament and get elected.
    Fascina was elected to the Lower House in Marsala. (ANSA).
