    ROME, May 6 (RIA Novosti) – Giulio Andreotti, the man who was seven times the prime minister of Italy, has died at the age of 94, Italian media said on Monday, citing family sources.

    Andreotti was a leading member of Italy’s now defunct Christian Democracy party, which dominated post-war Italy for decades.

    He was a lawmaker in every Italian parliament since 1946 and was made a senator-for-life in 1991.

    He was accused of being involved in a murder and having Mafia ties in the late 1990s, but was later acquitted of both charges.

    Andreotti had been ill for some time, Italian media said.
