Lotito and Galliani elected to Senate

Lazio President Claudio Lotito and former Milan CEO Adriano Galliani have new roles, as they were both elected to the Italian Senate.

The elections were held throughout the country on Sunday and are pointing towards a hung parliament.

However, individual results for Senate seats have already crossed paths with the world of football.

Current Lazio President Lotito has won his election to the Senate for Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia centre-right party and will represent the Benevento constituency.

Former Milan CEO Galliani has also won his seat in the Senate for Forza Italia, representing the Lombardia 3 constituency.

There were several other sporting figures up for election, as Swimming Association President Paolo Barelli joined the Parliament along with judo Olympic medallist Felice Mariani and yachtsman Andrea Mura.

Potenza Calcio President Salvatore Caiato won his election comfortably, despite being expelled by the Movimento 5 Stelle party because of an investigation into money-laundering.
