The old bastard pulled it off. Seems to get fairly solid majorities in both chambers. Veltroni just conceded.
There’s was even more disgust at the political process than usual this election. Lots of scandals and Beppe Grillo rallies. Some dude ate his ballot, etc. So turnout was lower than usual this year. I gotta assume that hurt the left.
So they’re on track to have ten years of Silvio in a twelve year period, quite possibly. At least after that he’ll be to old to run again (He’s 71 now). The evil dorks, Lega Nord, had a great day too. Lovely times ahead for Italy.
