Giorgia Meloni Set to Become Italy’s New Prime Minister
Italy Turns Right
Giorgia Meloni, the leader of Italy’s right wing Fratelli d’Italia party, is set to become Italy’s first woman prime minister. After winning 26% of the popular vote in the latest elections, her party is expected to lead a coalition government of right and center, which should be in place by the end of October. Results show the right-wing coalition will hold the majority of seats in both the lower chamber and in the senate, but not the two-thirds required to change the Constitution.
