(ANSA) – ROME, SEP 26 – Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi said Monday that an attempt by the centrist Third Pole to steal the voters of his Forza Italia (FI) party had failed after FI gained a better-than-expected 8% of the vote as part of the right coalition that won Sunday's general election.
"The strong growth of Brothers of Italy (FdI) did not hurt us and the attempt by the so-called centrists to capture our votes completely failed," Berlusconi said in a video message.
"Their limited success came at the cost of the PD". (ANSA).
