Political elections 2022, the results: who enters and who leaves the new Parliament

Silvio Berlusconi returns to the Senate, Luigi Di Maio out of the Chamber, Ilaria Cucchi, Claudio Lotito, Rita Dalla Chiesa and Andrea Crisanti to debut in Parliament. With the ballot almost over, the ballots of candidates who were promoted and rejected in political elections are composed. It starts with a big comeback, that of the Forza Italia leader at Palazzo Madama. The Cav obtains the seat of Lombardia U06, that of Monza, winning more than 50% of the votes in the whole college.

On the other hand, the now ex-senator Emma Bonino, beaten along with Carlo Calenda at the one-person boarding school in central Rome by FdI exponent Lavinia Mennuni, leaves the scene.

The only one to win is Bruno Tabacci, a longtime politician and outgoing undersecretary to the prime minister, elected in the unipersonal college of the Chamber of Lombardy 1 (Milan). Strong disappointment for Di Maio: “There are no ifs, buts or excuses to make. We lost. The Italians – he admits – did not consider our political project mature and valid enough. And on this our community will have to open a reflection “.

Among the political forces that do not reach the 3% limit are also ItalExit and the Popular Union: no seats, therefore, neither for Gianluigi Paragone – elected to the Senate in 2018 with the 5 Stars and later expelled from the Movement – nor for the former magistrate and former mayor of Naples Luigi De Magistris. Just under 3% also + Europe, which however announces a request for a recount. The reconfirmation of the senator of the Northern League Simone Pillon is lacking: “My seat has not been occupied – she explains – but I will not give up. God wants”.

While Ilaria Cucchi, activist and Stefano’s sister, makes her debut at Palazzo Madama, the young man killed in Rome in 2009 while in prison, elected with 40% in the one-person constituency of Florence under the symbol of the Alleanza Verdi Sinistra. Teammate and trade unionist Aboubakar Soumahoro also checked out, still in second position after Daniela Dondi (centre-right) in Modena’s one-person council, but rescued in proportional.

The president of Lazio Claudio Lotito, elected uninominal to the Senate in Molise under the symbol of Forza Italia, also hits the mark. Center left, Pier Ferdinando Casini, candidate for Montecitorio, beats Vittorio Sgarbi (center right) at the red ‘fort’ in Bologna. With the exception of the former Minister of Economy Giulio Tremonti, this time running for FdI, defeated by the secretary of + Europe Benedetto Della Vedova in the one-person board of Milan by the Chamber, but ‘fished’ in the proportional. For + Europe, however, the only other re-elect is Riccardo Magi in Turin.

Andrea Crisanti becomes a senator as a candidate for center-left leader in the foreign electorate for the Senate. “I have never campaigned before, I am satisfied with a very high result that I did not expect”, comments the virologist to LaPresse, who became known during the pandemic.

Among the greats of the Democratic Party, Emanuele Fiano lost his seat in Parliament – defeated by Isabella Rauti of the FdI in the one-person college of Sesto San Giovanni, the now ex-Stalingrad of Italy – Andrea Marcucci, Stefano Ceccanti, Filippo Sensi and Mônica Cirina. Former IV minister Teresa Bellanova is also out. President Maria Elisabetta Casellati, on the other hand, remains in the Senate. From TV to Montecitorio, Mediaset presenter Rita Dalla Chiesa, blue candidate and elected deputy in Puglia.

A negative result for economist Carlo Cottarelli, candidate for the Democratic Party in the Senate at the one-person college in Cremona, where, however, the passion of the Italian Brothers Daniela Santanché prevails. The former mr. Spending’ review is saved, however, thanks to proportional.
