ronzulli chief force italy senate who he is



Licia Ronzulli, 47, was elected president of the senators of Forza Italia, by acclamation. Tuesday, October 18, the choices of all the parliamentary groups, both in the Senate and in the hemicycle, materialized.

“I have known the senator for thirty years. She is good at everything she has done and she will be good in this role as well,” said Silvio Berlusconi at the Forza Italia meeting. Long applause accompanied the election of Licia Ronzulli. A partly liberating applause after the tensions of last week where Ronzulli became a real political case, despite his denials, because of Berlusconi’s desire to impose him on Giorgia Meloni. But the first in pectore did not hear any reasons: the former nurse who climbed Forza Italia will have no place in his government.

Ronzulli mastiff anti melons?

So the Knight had to fall back on a parliamentary role for the senator, who became the leader of Forza Italia in the Senate. An important role, which could make Ronzulli a “watchdog” of the interests of Forza Italia against the measures that the Meloni government will want to pass quickly, perhaps by imposing a vote of confidence. “I thank President Berlusconi for designating me as President of the Forza Italia group at the Palazzo Madama and all the senators who unanimously accepted this proposal”, Ronzulli’s first words. “We expect hard and demanding, but certainly also exciting work, which we will all continue together, as we are used to. For my part, I will occupy this post with the greatest responsibility and enormous dedication, certain of being able to count on the support of all my colleagues”.
