Giorgia Meloni set to become Italy’s first female prime minister

Just a small update to Eamonn’s post from earlier here. Italy’s right-wing bloc looks set to secure a clear majority in both houses of parliament, marking a change of era for the country. Will there finally be a chance for some form of political stability? Either way, a record turnout at the polls made it hard to really consider the results reassuring, but we’ll see.

Giorgia Meloni is the leader of the alliance and looks set to lead what will be Italy’s most right-wing government since World War II. This will mark a big change from Draghi’s government over the past 18 months and it will be interesting to see what stance they take on the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

Either way, the same issues plaguing Europe will continue to plague Italy, namely soaring energy prices, the gas crisis, the current situation in Ukraine and rising recession risks. In the region.
