What does the future hold for Berlusconi?
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has survived votes of confidence in the Italian Senate and lower house which had threatened to force him to step down. What does the future hold for Berlusconi?
He comfortably won the first round in the Senate, but the second vote in the lower house was extremely close.
Mr Berlusconi had urged MPs not to jeopardise the country's stability by ousting him.
What does the future hold for Berlusconi? Can his government survive its term or will it face renewed challenges from its rivals? Can Berlusconi continue to lead or has he been fatally undermined?
