A topless activist surprised former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi while casting his vote in the Italian elections today. The woman, who had the words ‘Berlusconi, you’ve expired’ written in black marker on her chest, jumped onto the table at the Milan polling station as Berlusconi was voting.
Photographers in the room jostled for position amid the chaos while Berlusconi, 81, was escorted out.
Italians are heading to the polls in one of the country’s most uncertain elections ever.
The results of the vote, which are expected to be announced early on Monday, could re-establish Silvio Berlusconi, the conservative former prime minister and billionaire forced out of office in 2011 under a cloud of scandal, as the dominant force in Italian politics.
