DrThe center-right coalition won Italy’s snap parliamentary elections on Sunday with 42.8 percent. This was the result of projections made by TV presenter LA7. The alliance of the right-wing conservative brothers in Italy led by Giorgia Meloni, the right-wing nationalist Lega led by Matteo Salvini, and the Christian-democratic Forza Italy led by Silvio Berlusconi achieved an absolute majority of votes in both houses of Parliament.
President Sergio Mattarella is likely to entrust election winner Giorgia Meloni, whose party, according to Ray broadcaster’s calculations, won 25.5 percent of the vote, to form a government. The second strongest force in the alliance is Lega (8.5 percent), followed by Forza Italia (7.9 percent).
Italexit miss entering Parliament
According to opinion polls, the Social Democratic Party led by Enrico Letta will be the strongest opposition force with 19 percent of the vote. They recognized the electoral victory of the right-wing camp and intend to go into the opposition. According to forecasts, the left-populist Five Star Movement will receive 16% of the vote.
The Liberal Alliance of the “Third Pole” achieved a respectable result with a good seven percent of the vote, with the Green Party receiving less than four percent.
The Italexit party, which wants Italy to leave the European Union, lost its chance to enter Parliament with about 2% of the vote. At 64 percent, the voter turnout was the lowest ever in the republic’s history. In 2018 it was still 73%.
