  3. 3. LA POLITICA DOPO IL VOTO Berlusconi è il più votato Ballottaggi, accordo con Bossi Quasi tre milioni di preferenze nelle cinque circoscrizioni: il Cav ha aumentato di tremila voti. Soddisfatto per il successo delle tre candidate, Comi, Ronzulli, Matera. Bossi e il Cav sosterranno in prima persona i candidati al ballottaggio. Il filo diretto Arcore via dell'Umiltà è stato continuo. Man mano che il quadro elettorale si andava completando, tra preferenze per le Europee e risultati amministrativi, il presidente del consiglio ha telefonato più volte a Denis Verdini. Quasi tre milioni di preferenze nelle cinque circoscrizioni: Il Cav ha aumentato di tremila voti Soddisfatto per il successo delle tre candidate, Comi, Ronzulli, Matera. In serata cena con Bossi.Obiettivo: avere prima possibile il quadro aggiornato con tutti i risultati. Non solo. C'è anche da stabilire la strategia di comunicazione da usare in queste ore, cosa dire e cosa non dire. L'idea di Berlusconi è chiara dall'inizio: puntare su tutto ciò che di positivo è emerso in queste elezioni. I seggi presi, il gran numero di consensi ottenuto, le tre candidate da lui tanto volute e riuscite a passare. Insomma, superata la delusione iniziale per quel &quot;4 davanti&quot; non raggiunto, quel «oltre 40%» più volte annunciato dal Cavaliere negli ultimi mesi, Berlusconi punta a far emergere il bicchiere semi pieno. Passando quindi per la maggioranza, Pdl-Lega, che tiene; per il governo in carica «molto più forte rispetto a tanti altri»; per il crollo del Pd, evidente a tutti e su più fronti. Innazitutto il dato personale: due milioni e settecentomila preferenze.   Il Cavaliere, «candidato di bandiera» in tutte e cinque le circoscrizioni, è stato il più votato su tutto il territorio nazionale. Poi c'è un secondo dato, per Berlusconi del tutto positivo. L'elezione delle tre candidate da lui sponsorizzate, le new entries a Strasburgo Laura Comi, Licia Ronzulli e Barbara Matera. Quest'ultima, nella circoscrizione Sud ha fatto un vero e proprio en plein dei consensi. Con oltre 120 mila preferenze diventa la regina delle preferenze, alle spalle del premier. La delusione del Cavaliere per il 40% non raggiunto è sicuramente mitigata dal crollo del Pd. Chi ha parlato con il premier racconta «una soddisfazione» per il dato definitivo. «Non ci dimentichiamo che abbiamo preso quattro seggi in più (29 in tutto) rispetto alle scorse europee». Per tutta la giornata Berlusconi è rimasto chiuso nella sua casa milanese. L'unica uscita l'ha fatta nel primo pomeriggio per raggiungere la villa di Lesmo, sede della futura Università della Libertà. Il premier pensa a come rafforzare il partito, scigliendo anche alcune faide interne (vedi caso Sicilia). I coordinatori d'ora in poi - ragionava Berlusconi con chi ha avuto modo di sentirlo - dovranno lavorare a tempo pieno, puntare a radicare il partito sul territorio meglio di quanto abbiano fatto sino ad ora. E, perché no, rinunciare ai doppi incarichi. In attesa dei dati definitivi del voto amministrativo che conferma il boom del Carroccio, sono proprio i leghisti, nella tradizionale cena del lunedì sera ad Arcore con Berlusconi e Bossi, a battere già cassa per il brillante risultato elettorale alle europee. «Chiederemo la guida di alcune regioni del Nord», è il biglietto da visita che esibisce Roberto Calderoli presentandosi in villa. E siamo solo all'inizio.

  4. 4. Virtual Journalist: A virtual system for news generation POLITICS AFTER THE VOTE Berlusconi is the most voted  Ballot, according to Bossi   Nearly three million of preferences in the five boroughs: The Cav has increased three thousand votes.Pleased with the success of the three candidates, Comi, Ronzulli, Matera. Bossi and Cav support in the first person to run candidates. The direct route Arcore dell'Umiltà was continuous. As the electoral framework was completing it, including preferences for the European and administrative performance, the chairman of the board has called several times to Denis Verdino. Nearly three million of preferences in the five boroughs: The Cav has increased three thousand votes Met for the success of the three candidates, Comi, Ronzulli, Matera. In the evening dinner with Bossi.Obiettivo: having the earliest possible date picture with all the results. Not only. There is also a determining the communication strategy to be used at this time, what to say and what not. The idea of Berlusconi is clear from the beginning: to focus on everything positive that has emerged in these elections.Seats taken, the large number of consents granted, the three candidates so much he wanted and managed to pass. So, after the initial disappointment that &quot;front 4&quot; not reached, that &quot;40%&quot; many times announced by the Knights in recent months, Berlusconi aims to bring out the glass half full. Turning then to the majority, Pdl-League, which takes, for the incumbent government &quot;much stronger than many others&quot;, for the collapse of Pd, evident to all and on multiple fronts. First of all the personal information: two million seven hundred thousand and preferences. Il Cavaliere, &quot;candidate flag&quot; in all five boroughs, was the most votes throughout the country. Then there is a second figure for Berlusconi entirely positive. The election of the three candidates sponsored by him, the new entries in Strasbourg Laura Comi, Licia Ronzulli and Barbara Matera. The latter, in the South constituency has a real open consensus. With over 120 thousand preferences becomes the queen of preferences, behind the premier. The disappointment of Knight for 40% is not reached tempered by the collapse of Pd. Who has spoken to the premier told a &quot;satisfaction&quot; for the final figure. &quot;We forget that we have four more seats (29 in all) than the European past.&quot; Throughout the day remained closed Berlusconi at his home in Milan. The only exit was made in the early afternoon to reach the villa Lesmo, home of the future of Liberty University. The premier thinks of how to strengthen the party, some feuds Scigliano (see case Sicily).The coordinators from now on - for reasons Berlusconi who was able to hear it - will have to work full time, seek to entrench the party in the territory better than we have done until now. And why not, give up the double posts. Pending the final data of the administrative vote confirming the boom Carroccio, it is the leghista, in the traditional dinner on Monday evening at Arcore with Berlusconi and Bossi, to fly to the cash already brilliant at European election results. &quot;We will ask the leadership of some regions of the North ', is the business card that displays Roberto Calderoli presented in the villa. And we are only beginning.
