Future and Freedom
In 2001, he was elected to the Chamber of Deputies. He was reelected in 2006 as a member of People of Freedom. In 2005, he was appointed by Gianfranco Fini as National Spokesman for National Alliance. He served as Minister of European Affairs into the Berlusconi IV Cabinet from 2008 to 2010. In 2010 Ronchi left The People of Freedom and joined Future and Freedom, the new party founded by Fini.
Shortly after having been appointed as chairman of the National Assembly of the Future and Freedom party on 13 February 2011, Ronchi and other party leaders, like Adolfo Urso, criticized Gianfranco Fini for allegedly departing from centre-right values. Ronchi resigned on May 18 and left the party on July 9, upon Angelino Alfano's appointment as secretary of The People of Freedom, and founded a new centre-right association, FareItalia.
