Italy’s government in crisis as right-wing calls for new elections

Giorgia Meloni, the leader of the ultra-nationalist Brothers of Italy party, called on Friday, in the midst of the current crisis in the government coalition, to which he does not belong, to hold the general elections scheduled for May 2023 at the earliest. possible.

“Enough of the battles and palace games on the skin of Italy and Italians: have the courage and dignity to present yourself to the citizens,” Meloni said in a message posted on social media.

The Five Star Movement (M5S), which has an important weight in the aforementioned coalition, abstained last Thursday in the Senate on an aid decree worth 24 billion euros, considering it insufficient.

Draghi finally got the initiative approved with 172 votes in favor and 39 against, but without the support of 61 senators from the M5S, which called a cabinet meeting after which he submitted his resignation to President Sergio Mattarella who rejected it.

Analysts estimate that the political scenario is very complex, who anticipate a possible dissolution of the Pentastar alliance with the Democratic Party (PD) due to the latter’s support for the prime minister.

The possible split between the forces of the center-left will be in favor of the Italian right, which is represented in the government coalition Forza Italia and La Liga, to which is added the FdI, which has strengthened its electoral base in recent months.

Opinion polls conducted last month, cited by Corriere della Sera, La Repubblica and other media, put the FdI as the candidate to win the next election with between 22 and 24 percent of the vote, while the PD adds between 21 and 24 percent of the vote. 23 percent in most of those surveys.

The League ranks third with 15% support while Forza Italia scores between 7 and 10%, putting the latter political group on the same level as the M5S.

And it seems that other squads are down, as is the case with Más Italia, by 5.0%. Alliance of the Italian Left and Greens (4.0), Italy FIFA (3.0), plus Article One and Italexit, both with 2.0 percent acceptance

According to these figures, the coalition of the three right-wing parties would theoretically achieve as much as 50 percent support among voters, if elections were held these days, while the center-left would barely add 30 percent.
