Berlusconi seeks MEP seat to fight for an EU faithful to the original vision of the founders

Reading Time: 1 minute

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, 82, said he is running for the European Parliament in May’s election because he wants to fight for a more united European Union faithful to the vision of the bloc’s founders.

Berlusconi said that even in his old age, he wants to work for change in Europe.

During a weekend convention of his Forza Italia party, which in recent years has seen its popularity plummet as voters turn to parties on the right, Berlusconi said he wants Europe to return to the project of the founding fathers, who wanted a much more united Europe, a Europe with only one foreign policy, with only one defence policy.
