Berlusconi again gave Lotito the opportunity to fulfill his desire to be a senator, after trying unsuccessfully in the 2018 elections, and on this occasion he fulfilled his electoral objective and achieved his desired seat. The victory went to the coalition led by the far-right Giorgia Meloni, leader of the Brothers of Italy party, and which also includes Berlusconi's formation.

"I have put heart, passion and genuine feelings into this election campaign. The people of Molise have entered my heart and have understood my full availability. I will now take their demands to Parliament with the same determination that I used in the election campaign," said the president of Lazio once the election results have been confirmed.

Lotito prevailed in the single-member constituency of Molise with 43% of the votes.

For his part, Berlusconi, who was already part of the Senate - expelled in 2013 after his conviction for tax fraud in his company Mediaset -, regained his seat from the constituency of the city of Monza, where he is also in charge of managing his new football project with his right-hand man, Adriano Galliani.
