Early official election results coming in from Italy indicate Giorgia Meloni is set to become the nation’s first female prime minister, and the coalition she leads will be taking the country in a rightward conservative direction. Centro Destra is the national conservative coalition led by Meloni and has won enough seats in Italy’s parliament to establish a majority.
Centro Destra is led by Meloni’s Fratelli d’Italia (“Brothers of Italy”) Party, which won 26% of the vote in Sunday’s election, making it the new largest party in Italy. The party won just 4.4% in the last national election in 2018. The conservative coalition won 43% of the vote collectively on Sunday.

The conservative victory in Italy comes on the heels of the Swedish national elections that saw the right-wing nationalist Sweden Democrat Party make significant gains in forming a new populist government in the major economic power.
Carnegie Europe director Rosa Balfour told reporters on Sunday that the best descriptive terms for Meloni’s beliefs are “ultraconservative values, anti-immigration and nationalism.”
Meloni has taken public positions supporting a naval blockade around Italian ports to block illegal aliens from the Middle East and Northern Africa from sneaking into the country. She has also supported a number of conservative initiatives, including opposition to gay marriage, the LGBT political lobby, and COVID-19 passoports.
She is pro-life and supports the protection of “religious and moral values” while promoting economic freedom as part of a “just relationship between government and taxpayers.”
Political commentators now expect Italy to take on a more adversarial role with the governing body of the European Union, similar to the current EU relationship with member nations Poland and Hungary. Those countries have especially resisted official EU policies regarding LGBT rights while stressing the importance of their national sovereignty.
European Commission President Ursala von der Leyen spoke earlier this month about the possibility of punishing Italy if the elections there did not go in a direction satisfactory to the globalist agenda. She said, “If things go in a difficult direction — and I’ve spoken about Hungary and Poland — we have the tools.” She was referring to the “tools” needed to financially penalize Italy if conservatives won the elections.
Meloni told the 2020 National Conservatism conference in Rome that Italy “did not fight against, and defeat, communism in order to replace it with a new internationalist regime.” She said Europe’s defeat of communism was meant to “permit independent nation-states once again to defend the freedom, identity, and sovereignty of their peoples.”
As the international corporate media and the globalist EU powers respond in shock to the Italian elections, Meloni will be challenged with quickly organizing a government that can address the ongoing energy crisis hammering Europe as winter approaches.
