Adriano Galliani has been elected to the Italian Senate as a member of former AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi’s centre-right Forza Italia party.
The former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of AC Milan was elected to the Senate by the provinces of Varese, Como, Lecco, Sondrio and the 35 municipalities of the Bergamo area.
Speaking about his new status via calciomercato, Galliani said: “The election was a complex day, but I’m pleased to have won. In Parliament I will follow party protocol, but I want to take care of the area that elected me – the provinces of Varese, Como, Lecco, Sondrio and 35 municipalities of the Bergamo area.”
“I have always lived in a privileged world and, for the first time, I have witnessed the problems suffered by different communities for myself. I did not sleep. I have never been involved in politics before, but Berlusconi wanted me because he thinks I am a man of action.” he added.
