Silvio Berlusconi,the scandal-hit former Italian Prime Minister,is said to be lining up one of his “babes” to be the countrys next leader.
The 75-year-old Italian politician,who quit last year after being charged over his sleazy bunga bunga parties,is believed to favour glamorous businesswoman Daniela Santanche for his old position.
The 51-year-old brunette,who is part of a group known as Silvios Babes,has emerged as a front-runner to be the next leader of his centre-right People of Freedom Party,the Sun reported.
The political siren has been dubbed Italys Sarah Palin for her good looks and thunderous attacks on opponents.
She served as an under-secretary in Berlusconis last cabinet.
