Italy: Meloni-Salvini-Berlusconi pre-election agreement for the prime ministership

Italy’s conservative leaders met in Rome today to chart their parties’ path to early parliamentary elections on September 25.

According to Italian media, Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia, Matteo Salvini’s League and Giorgia Meloni’s far-right Brotherhood of Italy have agreed that whichever of these three parties gets the most votes will have the right to nominate the president of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, the candidate for prime minister of the conservative faction.

“We will be solid, there is no doubt,” said League secretary Matteo Salvini.

Today, however, another well-known name left Berlusconi’s Forza Italia: after the Minister of Public Administration Renato Brunetta and the Minister of Regional Affairs Maria Stella Gelmini, she said “goodbye” to the party of “Cavaliere” and the minister responsible for the Italian South, Mara Karfania. According to many analysts, it is quite possible that all three of them will cooperate with the center-left.

Currently, in various opinion polls, the center-right leads the forces of the center-left by at least 10 percentage points.
