Rome, November 30 - A revived Forza Italia, the
party founded by ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi in 1994 and
replaced by the larger People of Freedom (PdL) party in 2009,
would poll 9.3% in upcoming general elections according to a
survey conducted by statistics institute SWG and published
Friday.
''The votes for 'Forza Italia 2.0' would all come from the
PdL, which would therefore fall to around 4%,'' said SWG
President Roberto Weber.
The PdL is currently in turmoil over recent
local-government scandals and confusion over whether to hold a
primary ahead of general elections next spring.
Earlier this month there was speculation that Berlusconi
was considering relaunching Forza Italia and abandoning its
successor, which he co-founded with the then leader of
right-wing National Alliance (AN) and current House Speaker
Gianfranco Fini, although it is reported that this plan has now
been dropped.
Party secretary Angelino Alfano was opposed to the idea,
instead pressing for a revamp of the PdL.
However the party may split anyway because many former
members of AN are unhappy about the direction it is taking.
