Elected MP for the first time in 1996, from 2001 to 2006 he was Chairman of the Budget Committee in the Italian Chamber of Deputies. He was described by the New York Times as a powerful deputy of Mr. Bossi and by the Economist as part of the "original core" of the party. In 2010, The Guardian described him as an "influential member of Berlusconi's Northern League party".
