Ally Berlusconi won the elections in Sicily

Ally Berlusconi won the elections in Sicily”

"Sicily has made a choice in favor of a path to real, serious and constructive change", wrote the 81-year-old Berlusconi on Twitter.

He was followed by centre-left candidate Fabrizio Micari on 18.6% and leftwinger Claudio Fava on 6.1%.

Earlier it was reported that Berlusconi's intention to return to politics.

Though he can not run for office due to a 2013 tax fraud conviction, Berlusconi hopes that the European court of human rights will overturn the ban, when his case is reviewed later this year.

Berlusconi's alliance is now expected to be the biggest party in next year's national elections, according to Reuters, and he is hoping to overturn his ban on running for office, with the European Court of Human Rights due to decide on his case later this year.

He returned to the fray after open-heart surgery previous year and campaigned actively in Sicily. Even if he is denied the chance to run, he has still proven that he is indeed an influential figure, should the centre right capture national power.

The democratic party lost control in the regional Parliament.

After a raft of vote setbacks in recent years, Renzi has many critics inside the PD who may now try to mount a challenge to his leadership.

The right is united.

Right-wing parties, including the Northern League, would split the remainder.

But the issue has dented support for the centre left, which has further damaged itself by falling prey to ferocious schisms.

The Democrats and Five Stars are neck and neck in polls for the next parliamentary elections.

The turnout was 46.75% (2,179,122 of the 4,661,111 eligible voted) compared to 47.41% in 2012.

Investors are anxious Five Star might win control of the country.

Markets were little changed on Monday.
