Meloni senses opportunity to reshape Europe with the right – and Italy – in charge – POLITICO

“There is room to build a different majority in the European Parliament and therefore a different Europe with different policies,” she said.

Meloni’s cooperation – and the share of seats his Brothers of Italy party is poised to win in the elections – is coveted by both the leader of the French National Rally, Marine Le Pen, and the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.

Over the weekend, Le Pen reportedly called on Meloni to unite to create the second largest group in the European Parliament. Von der Leyen, days earlier, had said she was ready to ignore the homophobic policies adopted by Meloni’s party in Italy and incorporate it into her own European People’s Party.

Asked how it is possible to reconcile right-wing positions as different as those defended, for example, by von der Leyen and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, Meloni asserted that Italy was no longer following France and Germany, but led the way. “If the Italians help me, we can change Europe.”

“We should be happy. I don’t remember Italy being particularly central in the past. We conservatives are the only ones who can create progressive change.”
