Giorgia Meloni, the leader of the far-right Fratelli d’Italia (Italy’s Brothers) Party, stands out in the opinion polls in the early general elections to be held in Italy on Sunday.
The 45-year-old Roman woman comes to the fore as a new hope for a disillusioned electorate in many ways.
It is seen that Italy is pulling more and more to the right with a short time before the elections.
As a result, the Right Alliance, made up of La Lega, Forza Italia and Fratelli d’Italia (FDI), is leading in the opinion polls. Giorgia Meloni, President of Fratelli d’Italia, is ultra-conservative, identitarian and nationalist.
The young female leader’s party, which appears to be highly popular in opinion polls, is ahead of the centre-left Democratic Party with 24 percent of the vote. The FDI was just over 4 percent in the 2018 elections.
However, in the decade Meloni, fed up with the “dictatorship” of Brussels, managed to gather the aspirations of Italians around her name due to the cost of living, the stagnation of children’s futures and their lost hopes.
Meloni seeks to put the interests of Italians first with the slogan “God, country, family”.
Among Meloni’s priorities are closing the borders to “protect Italy from the danger of Islamization”, renegotiating EU treaties so that Rome can take its own destiny, fighting against LGBT lobbies, and the country with the highest average age in the industrialized world after Japan. There is a solution to the “demographic winter” by raising the birth rate and reducing naturalization.
He was thrown into politics at the age of 15
Observers note that Meloni serves as a reference point for objection, discontent and protest.
Born on January 15, 1977 in Rome, Meloni, at the age of 15, joined the activities of student associations that are always on the far right, and also worked as a babysitter and waitress.
In 1996, Meloni became head of the Azione Studentesca, whose emblem is the Celtic Cross.
Meloni, who obtained her journalism card in 2006, was elected as a deputy in the same year and became the Deputy Speaker of the Parliament. Two years later, Ms. Meloni was appointed Minister of Youth in the government of Silvio Berlusconi.
He was discovered by TV channels when he sat in the ministry seat. His youth, recklessness, views made a good “media figure” out of him.
ALWAYS STATED IN THE OPPOSITION
Meloni, who kept her private life secret for a long time, however, realized that as a young blonde woman in Italy, which is still a very macho country, she could take advantage of her private life as much as her ideas.
In a fiery speech to her fans in 2019, Meloni said, “I am Giorgia. I am a woman, a mother, an Italian, a Christian.”
Meloni, who lives with a TV programmer, has a daughter born in 2006.
Tired of the differences of opinion that gnawed the right, Meloni founded “Fratelli d’Italia” at the end of 2012 together with those who left “Berlusconisme” and remained in opposition.
He was always offered the job, but he always refused. Among those who have offered the post is Prime Minister Mario Draghi, who formed a government of national unity in February 2021 to get Italy out of the pandemic and economic crisis.
Meloni, who comes from a political family whose mentality is based on anticommunism, is a NATO member and strongly supports the sanctions imposed on Moscow.
Matteo Salvini, the leader of the far-right Lega (Unity) party and an “ardent supporter” of Russian President Vladimir Putin, opposes the sanctions and thinks they hit Italians who have to buy expensive natural gas.
Giorgia Meloni and his party are the heirs of the neofascist “Italian Social Movement” (MSI) founded after the Second World War!
The emblem of Fratelli d’Italia from MSI is a green-white-red flame with exactly the same design as the old National Front in France.
