Berlusconi says ready to become new Italian head of government

"Silvio Berlusconi, who has nine years of experience in the government, who has presided in the G7 and G8 groups three times, has recently become available following the rehabilitation. That's why I think that because of the lack of persons [available to become prime minister] I am completely available because there is no candidate who can compare with Silvio Berlusconi," the former prime minister told reporters.

 

Berlusconi went on to say that, if chosen to head the government, he will give the center-right coalition the opportunity to propose its program to parliament in hopes that it would gather enough support among lawmakers.

 

 

Despite the fact that the Italian parliamentary elections took place in early March, the attempts of the center-right coalition, consisting of the Lega party, Forza Italia and the Brothers of Italy movement, as well as of the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S), to create a new cabinet have failed.
