The conservative Fratelli d’Italia formation led by Giorgia Meloni outperformed the center-left Democratic Party in the polls.
All the ingredients are there for a comeback by the Italian right. In last June’s municipal elections, the regional alliances formed between its three elements, Fratelli d’Italia, League and Forza Italia, had already registered strong gains.
Six weeks ahead of early legislative elections, polls herald a landslide victory for the right-wing coalition, credited with voting intentions of 45 to 46% in surveys. With such a result, the right could secure a comfortable majority of seats in the Chamber of Deputies (more than 60%) under the Italian mixed voting system.
In detail, it is Giorgia Meloni’s party, Fratelli d’Italia (FDI), that could come out on top with 23 to 24% of the votes ahead of the center-left Democratic Party. Matteo Salvini’s League could get around 14% of the vote and the indefatigable Berlusconi’s Forza Italia 9%.
