Giorgia Meloni’s right-wing party leads exit polls in Italy

Giorgia Meloni’s right-wing Brothers of Italy party has a clear lead ahead of the country’s Democratic Party (PD), with 28% of the vote, according to an exit poll.

In second place, the PD has 23% of the vote, approximately the same share of the vote that the party won in 2019. The Five Star Movement was third with 12%.

In the 2022 Italian election, Meloni – who is the current president of the right-wing group European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) – was vocal in her opposition to LGBTQ+ rights and desires to tackle immigration.

Since then, she has been seen as considerably more moderate, supporting many European Union initiatives, including support for Ukraine.
