Far-right and right-wing politicians in Europe, from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) to France’s National Alarm (RN) and Poland’s Law and Justice Party (PiS), congratulated Giorgia Meloni for her victory in the early parliamentary elections held yesterday Sunday in Italy.
Ms. Meloni and Italy’s post-fascist Adelphia party have won cleanly, based on the results so far. The far-right-right alliance is on its way to securing an absolute majority of seats in both the House and the Senate.
“We celebrate with her ItalyAfD MP Beatrix von Storch said via Twitter. “Sweden in the north, Italy in the south — left-wing governments are a thing of the past”threw away.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki in an epigram post on the same social networking site gave “Congratulations (to) Giorgia Meloni.”
French MEP Jordan Bardela, who belongs to Marine Le Pen’s RN, considered that Italian voters give Ursula von der Leyen a ‘lesson in humility’the president of the European Commission, as broadcast by the German Agency and relayed by the Athens News Agency.
Much to the chagrin of many on the peninsula, Ms von der Leyen said last week that Brussels had “tools” to respond if Italy broke the rules and trampled on Europe’s shared values.
“No threat of any kind can stop democracy,” wrote MEP RN Bardela, arguing that Europeans are “taking their destiny into their own hands.”
For his part, Balas Orbán, an adviser to the prime minister of Hungary, the right-wing nationalist Viktor Orbán, also gave “congratulations” to the leaders of the Italian far-right and far-right alliance, stressing that “in these difficult times, we need friends more than ever who have a common vision and a common approach to the challenges in Europe”.
