The voting centers in Italy They closed at 11:00 pm on Sunday. Due to the time, the official results are expected to be known on Monday. Now, a few weeks will pass before the name of the person who will take over as prime minister is known, which, according to estimates, would be georgia melon.
According to exit polls, the post-fascist Brothers of Italy party, led by her, leads the elections, something not seen since the end of World War II. The post-fascist formation obtained between 22% and 26% of the votes, well above its far-right allies in La Liga, Matteo Salvini (8.5% – 12.5%), and Forza Italia (6%). – 8%), by the conservative Silvio Berlusconi. Projections suggest that the right-wing coalition would obtain between 36.5% and 46.5% of the vote.

However, the coalition’s expected victory raises questions about the country’s alliances in Europe. For example, Germany’s Social Democratic Party warned last week that its victory would be bad for European cooperation. Lars Klingbeil, president of the political organization, to which Foreign Minister Olaf Scholz belongs, said that Meloni had aligned himself with “anti-democratic” figures, such as Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
Earlier this month, Meloni MEPs voted against a resolution condemning Hungary as “a hybrid regime of electoral autocracy”. The official is also an ally of Poland’s ruling nationalist Law and Justice party, the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats, and Spain’s far-right Vox party.
In addition, there are doubts about the position that the official could take in the face of the war in Ukraine. While she has condemned Russia’s invasion and supported sending weapons to the war-torn country, it is unclear whether her government will support the eighth round of European Union sanctions being discussed in Brussels.
