Berlusconi two-year ban undermining FI, says fiance
Ex-premier's daughter may provide hope21 March, 17:19
"A forced absence from the ballot boxes, from the electoral platforms, of a leader with Berlusconi's capacity does not pass by unnoticed," Francesca Pascale said in an interview with Italian newspaper la Repubblica. Following a definitive tax fraud conviction last year, Berlusoni was banned from office for two years, a decision recently upheld by the country's supreme court.
Future leadership may come from Berlusconi's daughter Marina, said Pascale.
