The results of the elections

Wins Fratelli d'Italia. According to the partial counts of the votes, the most advantaged party in the elections of 25 September 2022 is the one led by Giorgia Meloni, who is preparing with the right-wing coalition to lead the country. With about 53 thousand sections scrutinized out of 61,417 overall at 6 in the Chamber and 55 thousand in the Senate, as emerges from the data of the portal of the Ministry of the Interior Eligendo, the right-wing coalition (composed of Brothers of Italy, Lega, Forza Italia and Noi moderati ) travels on a percentage of 44.27% of the votes, followed by that of the center-left (Democratic Party, + Europe, Greens, Italian Left and Civic Engagement) at 26.40%.

The elections of 2022 mark the exploit of the Brothers of Italy, which in this phase of partial counting obtained over 26% of the votes. A result that in fact confirms what emerged from the polls and exit polls released by the media, handing Parliament over to a right-wing majority. In the elections at 11 pm 63.91% of those entitled to vote voted, when the data refer to over 7,904 municipalities out of 7,904. It is the lowest figure ever recorded for the general elections, with more than 9 points less than in 2018, when 73% of voters had gone to the polls at the same time. Political turnout figures mark a new decline. A phenomenon that is widespread in all regions but is particularly strong in the south, where almost half of the eligible voters desert the polls.

The results:

Meloni's victory The collapse of Lega and Forza Italia Pd below 20% 5 Star Movement and Action-Italia Viva The others outside Parliament

Meloni's victory

In the end the party by Giorgia Meloni won the majority. In five years, the leader of the Brothers of Italy has taken the party from 4% in 2018 to over 26%, always according to the partial counts. It is still too early to know if she will really be appointed first minister, as she claims, becoming the first in Italy to occupy this role.

Meloni has been president of the Brothers of Italy since 2014, after first militancy in the Italian Social Movement (MSI), a post-fascist party founded by the former fascist and republican Giorgio Almirante, then in the National Alliance (An), heir to the MSI, and finally in Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom. Born in Rome in 1977, she became Minister of Youth during the fourth Berlusconi government, between 2008 and 2011. She is currently a Senator of the Republic and president of the Party of European Conservatives and Reformists, a political movement with 56 seats out of 705 in the European Parliament. of Eurosceptic inspiration, nationalist, right-wing and close to the extreme right.

The Financial Times described her as "the rising star of the Italian extreme right", for her militancy in post-fascist parties and for his right-wing, nationalistic and Christian conservatism political positions. Among other things, it was said, in a tweet later deleted but reported by the Republic, that it is contrary to the crime of torture in the Italian legal system because "it prevents agents from doing their job" and contrary to the Mancino law, which punishes the crimes of racism and "those who publicly exalt exponents, principles, facts or methods of fascism, or its undemocratic purposes".

They are also opposed to same-sex marriage, adoption for same-parent families and, according to what is reported Il Giornale, proposed to amend the Constitution to establish that the family is made up only of a father and a mother, as happened in the Hungary of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. She is a firm supporter of the "Judeo-Christian roots" and their defense, so much so that she has included an ad hoc part of this issue in the European agenda of her party, and strongly opposed to euthanasia and gestation for others.

A supporter of the "naval blockade" to block migratory flows, which is also illegal, she has also opposed the introduction of both the ius soli, ie the granting of Italian citizenship to people born on Italian soil to foreign parents, and the ius Culturae, i.e. the granting of citizenship for those who have lived and studied in Italy for at least five years. Finally, his political program proposes constitutional reform to make Italy a presidential or semi-presidential republic, establishing the direct election of the President of the Republic, which he could do without calling a referendum, having obtained a two-thirds majority with his coalition. of seats in Parliament.

The collapse of Lega and Forza Italia

If Meloni assures the right-wing coalition a majority of the seats, including the Senate which was considered a question on the eve of the vote, according to the partial count data, Salvini's League collapses to 8.9%, well below pre-election expectations and halving 17% in 2018, while Forza Italia is at 8%. While the last coalition symbol, that is Noi moderati with Lupi, Toti and Brugnato, has not even reached the 1% necessary to enter Parliament.

Pd below 20%

The Democratic Party of Enrico Letta does not reach the threshold of 20% of consensus, considered the goal to be reached in order to oppose the race of the right-wing coalition. The partial counts give the Pd to 19.3%. Adding up the preferences obtained by the center-left coalition, we arrive at a partial 26.5%, equivalent to the votes collected by the list of Fratelli d'Italia alone. The Verdi-Italian Left alliance of Angelo Bonelli and Nicola Fratoianni reaches 3.6% and + Europe manages to win 2.95%, securing some seats. Civic Commitment of Luigi Di Maio, fourth crutch of the coalition, failed to reach the 1% threshold, necessary to enter Parliament for parties in coalitions, and his votes will therefore be dispersed.

5 Star Movement and Action-Italia Viva

Having been the first political force in Parliament, with 33% of the votes obtained in 2018, Giuseppe Conte's 5 Star Movement now stands at around 14.9%, however, confirming itself as the first political force in southern Italy. Another collapse, therefore, compared to the previous elections, but with some points recovered compared to the initial forecasts on the outcome of the 2022 campaign. at 7.7%, below the 10% threshold that was Calenda's goal to be able to tip the balance of a future government again led by Mario Draghi.

The others out of the Parliament

Respectively with 1.9%, 1.4% and 1.25 of the votes, Italexit by Gianluigi Paragone, Popular Union of the former mayor of Naples Luigi De Magistris and sovereign and popular Italy by Marco Rizzo do not reach, according to partial data, the 3% threshold necessary for parties that are not part of a coalition to access Parliament.
