Giorgia Meloni is set to become Italy’s first radical right-wing prime minister since World War II
Rome. According to an exit poll, far-right leader Giorgia Meloni’s electoral coalition has taken the lead in Italy’s general elections. Georgia Meloni’s Brothers of Italy party is leading Sunday’s elections. The party should obtain between 22 and 26% of the votes. Meloni hopes to secure a clear majority in both chambers of parliament with his allies Matteo Salvini’s League for the Right and former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia.
Georgia Meloni’s Brothers of Italy and a coalition of two right-wing parties are expected to win 45% of the vote in both houses of parliament, the AFP news agency reported. Its closest competitor appears to be the left-leaning Democratic Party-led coalition of former Prime Minister Enrico Letta, with exit polls indicating a 29.5% vote share. There may be a difference of 3.5% between this exit poll and the final results.
Giorgia Meloni, 45, will be a clear majority to become Italy’s first far-right prime minister since the end of World War II and the country’s first woman to hold the post. His party with neo-fascist roots will have to form a coalition with its main allies, the leader of the Anti-Diaspora League Matteo Salvini and the former conservative Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, to obtain a solid majority in parliament.

The sudden rise of Giorgia Meloni in Italy, the European Union’s third largest economy, is like a meteorite. This comes at a critical time when most of the European continent is struggling with rising inflation due to rising oil prices. This crisis is the result of the war in Ukraine. At the same time, the resolve of Western countries to unite against the Russian attack is also being tested.
