After being thrown out of parliament last year following a tax fraud conviction, former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi looks set to make a comeback to Italian politics, having struck a deal with a former center-left rival.

Despite having lost much of its support when former allies departed to form the New Center Right Party following his dismissal, Berlusconi’s Forza Italia Party has agreed with Matteo Renzi’s Democratic Party to cooperate in proposals to reform Italy’s electoral and constitutional system.

Renzi said that Berlusconi had decided to offer his support for policies that favor "governability and a bi-polar system, and eliminates the blackmail power of the smallest parties".
