Italy's Election
29 | september | 2022

The fall of Mario Draghi's Italian government on 20 July has caused a shock wave in the country and the calling of early parliamentary elections for 25 September. The polls indicate that the far-right Fratelli d'Italia party led by Giorgia Meloni, with neo-fascist roots, is likely to win in coalition with Matteo Salvini's Lega party and Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia.
