Bossi was in fact elected, non-election a mistake

Veteran League founder wins hometown Varese seat

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 28 - Historic Northern League ex-leader Umberto Bossi was in fact elected to parliament on Sunday, a top member of his League party said Wednesday, shortly before the interior ministry corrected the mistake it made in excluding the 81-year-old 'Senatur' after 35 years' service to parliament.
    "Up until the figure becomes definitive they can correct it," said Senate Deputy Speaker Roberto Calderoli, who started his political career shortly after Bossi was first elected in 1987.
    The ministry's election tracker subsequently confirmed that the veteran firebrand had been elected in a first-past-the-post race his home constituency of Varese north of Milan. (ANSA).
