Edmondo Privitera (b. 28 May, 1944) is the current President of Imagua and the Assimas, having been elected in March 2016, and former Prime Minister, serving from 1984 to 1992, and from 2012 until 2016.

Early life

Childhood home of Edmondo Privitera, 2009

Edmondo Privitera was born on 28 May, 1944 in the town of Piavenna, as the third and youngest child, and second son, of shopkeeper and reservist Gioele Privitera and housewife Flaviana Privitera. When he was nearly two and a half years of age, the Assimas Islands were ceded from Etruria to Estmere, who attached the islands to Imagua, thereby establishing the present-day nation of Imagua and the Assimas.

In 1949, he began attending school at the Piavenna Primary School, where he was described as being a "middling student," although "very charismatic." In 1953, he was enrolled at the Piavenna Middle School, and in 1955, when he took the eleven-plus, he passed "by sheer luck," and thus was able to enroll at a grammar school.

As there were no grammar schools in Piavenna, he was enrolled at the Legionario Grammar School at Rutigliano. There, he was described as a "middling student," but was noted by his teachers to be "charismatic," with one teacher noting his potential to enter the political arena.

In 1960, he took the O-levels and passed with flying colours. Thus, he was allowed to go into Sixth Form: after passing his A-levels in 1962, he obtained a scholarship at the Università di San Pietro, where he majored in law. He obtained a bachelor's degree in 1965, and gained a master's degree in 1967 in law. That year, he married Delfina Berenato, after having dated her for four years.

However, Edmondo Privitera soon decided to not become a lawyer, instead seeking to enter politics as he felt that "the only way to make a change is to not work as a lawyer or a judge, but rather, as a politician."

Political career

Early years

In 1968, Edmondo Privitera stood for election for the parochial council to represent his hometown of Piavenna. As all parochial candidates have to be independents, as per federal rules, Privitera campaigned as an independent against incumbent representative Volfango Pisapia, who served from 1952.

Privitera's campaign was based on "changing things for the better," and arguing that Pisapia had ran out of ideas. Combined with his oratorial skill, he managed to win with 46.5% of the vote, with Pisapia losing by 43.3%, and other candidates taking the remaining share.

Thus, when he was sworn in on 23 April, 1968 on the parochial council, he soon discovered that the parochial government was "powerless," to such a point that Privitera believed that he had to run for the Lesser House in the next national election.

Thus, it came as a shock to Privitera in 1969 when the Assimas Autonomy Act of 1969 was passed, giving the Assimas Parish autonomy over education, welfare, and social development in the parish. While the parochial council was still to remain non-partisan, the parochial council now had more power than "ever before."

Despite this, he remained a backbencher: while he generally leaned more to the social left, he was a key swing voter over the next few years.

By 1972, however, Privitera decided to not run for a second term in the parochial council, and announced his intention to join the Democratic Labour Party.

Backbencher in the Lesser House

At that point, incumbent Democratic Labour member of Parliament, Verulo Campana announced his intention to retire. This left the Democratic Labour Party scrambling to find a replacement, but ultimately settled on Edmondo Privitera, as he had the most "political experience" of the potential candidates.

Thus, in the 1972 elections, he ran against Conservative candidate Ottavio Trevisan. Trevisan was a factory owner who had operated a shoe factory in Rutigliano since 1949, and was believed to have the potential to take the seat away from the DLP. In addition, Trevisan had strong support from the Conservative leadership, especially by Querano Piro.

Edmondo Privitera knew that he had to try and (TBC).

Personal life

In 1963, Edmondo Privitera first met the 18-year old Delfina Berenato. Quickly falling in love, they remained in a relationship until they married in November 1967. According to Delfina in 2008, the marriage had been "a happy marriage." In 2018, a minor scandal emerged when it was revealed that they were second cousins, sharing a common great-grandmother.

Together, they have three children: Linda Privitera, born in 1968, Leo Privitera, born in 1971, and Cassandra Privitera, born in 1973.
