Italy's controversial ex-PM Silvio Berlusconi has returned to the centre of the political stage, striking a reform deal with a centre-left rival.

Berlusconi was thrown out of parliament in 2013 after a tax fraud conviction.

But he still heads the opposition Forza Italia party and held lengthy talks with Democratic Party leader Matteo Renzi late yesterday.
 
Under their agreement, he will back electoral and constitutional proposals aimed at making Italy more governable.
