Italians are voting in an election that is forecast to deliver the country’s most radical rightwing government since the end of the second world war, and a prime minister is ready to become a model for nationalist parties across Europe.

Giorgia Meloni’s successes in Italy are unlikely to be welcomed in Paris or Berlin.

A coalition led by Giorgia Meloni’s Brothers of Italy, a party with neofascist origins, is expected by polls ahead of the vote to secure a comfortable victory in both houses of parliament while taking between 44 and 47% of the vote.

Meloni’s party is also set to scoop the biggest share of the votes within the coalition, which includes the far-right League, led by Matteo Salvini, and Forza Italia, headed by Silvio Berlusconi, meaning she could become Italy’s first female prime minister.

The coalition’s victory, however, raises questions about the country’s alliances in Europe, and while Meloni has sought to send reassuring messages, her conquest of power is unlikely to be welcomed in Paris or Berlin.
Germany’s governing Social Democratic party warned last week that her win would be bad for European cooperation. Lars Klingbeil, the chairman of Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s SPD, said Meloni had aligned herself with “anti-democratic” figures such as Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orbán.
Earlier this month, Meloni’s MEPs voted against a resolution that condemned Hungary as “a hybrid regime of electoral autocracy”. Meloni is also allied to Poland’s ruling nationalist Law and Justice party, the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats and Spain’s far-right Vox party.
The 45-year-old firebrand politician from Rome received an endorsement from Vox towards the end of her campaign, and in response said the two parties were linked by “mutual respect, friendship and loyalty” while hoping victory for Brothers of Italy would give Vox some thrust in Spain.
“Meloni has an ambition to represent a model not only for Italy, but for Europe – this is something new [for the right in Italy] compared with the past,” said Nadia Urbinati, a political theorist at New York’s Columbia University and the University of Bologna. “She has contacts with other conservative parties, who want a Europe with less civil rights … the model is there and so is the project.”
Mattia Diletti, a politics professor at Rome’s Sapienza University, said Meloni would win thanks to her ability to be ideological but pragmatic, something that has allowed her to pip the French far-right leader, Marine Le Pen, to the post of becoming western Europe’s model for nationalism.

However, she is unlikely to rock the boat, at least at the beginning, as she wants to secure continuing flows of cash under Italy’s €191.5bn (£166bn) EU Covid recovery plan, the largest in the EU. The coalition has said it is not seeking to renegotiate the plan, but would like to make changes.

“Ambiguity is the key to understanding Meloni,” Diletti said. “She’s really interested in compromising with the EU on economic politics. But if the EU pushes her too much on the Italian government, she can always revert back to her safe zone as being a populist rightwing leader. She will do what she needs to do to stay in power.”
Salvini’s potential return to the interior ministry will also dampen hopes for a breakthrough in the EU’s long-stalled attempt to reform its migration system by sharing asylum seekers across member states. Salvini, who has close ties with Le Pen, said he “can’t wait” to resume his policy of blocking migrant rescue ships from entering Italian ports.
On Ukraine, Meloni has condemned Russia’s invasion and supported sending weapons to the war-torn country, but it remains unclear whether her government will back the eighth round of EU sanctions being discussed in Brussels. Salvini has claimed sanctions were bringing Italy to its knees, although he never blocked any EU measures against Russia when in Mario Draghi’s broad coalition government, which collapsed in July.
Voting started at 7am on Sunday, and turnout stood at about 19% by midday. The share of undecided voters was at 25% before voting began, meaning the rightwing alliance might win a slimmer majority than pollsters originally suggested. A leftwing alliance led by the Democratic party is predicted to get 22-27% of the vote.
Several seats in southern Italian regions, such as Puglia and Calabria, are also potentially in play after a mini-revival by the populist Five Star Movement, which regained support after promising to maintain its flagship policy, the basic income, if the party re-enters government.
There was a steady flow of voters to a booth in Esquilino, a multicultural district in Rome, on Sunday morning, but the mood was one of despondency.
“It feels as if we’re on a rudderless boat,” said Carlo Russo. “All we heard during the election campaign was an exchange of insults between the various parties rather than an exchange of ideas. And in moments of confusion such as this, people vote for the person who seems to be the strongest.”
Fausto Maccari, who runs a newspaper stand, said he won’t vote for the right but is unsure who he will back. “The choices are poor,” added Maccari, who is in his 60s. “For example, I look at Berlusconi and he reminds me of a comic character. At his age, he shouldn’t be doing politics. It would be like me, at my age, trying to be a footballer like Maradona.”
Many Italians who support Meloni are doing so because she is yet to be tried and tested in government, and are attracted by her determination and loyalty to her ideals.
“She presents herself as a capable, but not arrogant, woman,” said Urbinati. “She gets things done and is dedicated, but without this masculine adrenaline that wants power at all costs.”

In Europe now the far right you go the more votes you attract. The recent huge influx of baafrika and sand niggaz is scaring the jungus.

krakas wameona watakua minority huko kwao relatively soon so wana anza kiungiza baridi:D:D:D

The fuckers are doomed anyways. They prefer having pets over kids and homotrans shieet.

Now, ukipeleka crime na scams huko, what do you expect? Wewe umezoea because you grew up in it. So you want to show them there are crime hotspots by foreigners off-limits to their police

The US is also headed there.

The southern border is wide open for the latinos to flood into the US.

This issue might just bring the ideologically right leaning Republicans back into power in the Senate and House of Representatives in the November mid term elections.

Liberal homosexual wameshindwa kuongoza nchi. Hizi rights zimekuwa too much. Hawa right wing lazima Kavita kata tembea juu hakuna mnyonge.

Berlusconi huwanga ameji position always. sasa apigwe tender zote za sirikali aende Atombe malaya

Alikula 16 years old sana akiwa PM

Stop dreaming young man. We know what we are doing. Plus America is grossly underpopulated. USA is bigger than China but it has 340M people while China has 1B+

Celebrating the early results on Sunday evening, Salvini said on Twitter, “Center-right in clear advantage both in the House and in the Senate! It will be a long night, but already now I want to say THANK YOU.”

Meloni, a 45-year-old mother from Rome who won Sunday’s election to become Italy’s youngest and first female prime minister has campaigned under the slogan “God, country, and family,” leads a party whose agenda is rooted in Euroskepticism, anti-immigration policies, and one that has also proposed curtailing LGBTQ and abotion rights.

The center-left coalition, led by the left-wing Democratic Party and centrist party +Europe are set to win between 25.5% and 29.5% of the vote, while former prime minister Giuseppe Conte’s bid to revive the Five Star Movement appeared to have been unsuccessful, taking just 14 to 17% of the vote.

The Democratic Party conceded defeat early Monday morning, calling the results a “sad evening for the country.”

Despite her young age, Meloni has been in politics for quite some time. In 2008, she got her baptism of fire, serving as minister of youth under Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. The cabinet position she held back then was a relatively minor one, but the consensus was that Meloni was being groomed for power.

At the time, I was a young consigliere at the Italian Treasury, and I felt that perhaps there was more to Meloni. She looked as if she had literally consecrated her life to politics; it seemed more a vocation for her, a calling, than a profession. Because of this, she did not strike me at all as another protégé of a party leader trying her hand at government.

Years later, in 2021, Meloni’s autobiography came out. I rushed to buy a copy. In vivid detail, the book explains how painful Meloni’s youth was, and how important it was for her to become a party militant. Meloni’s father had abandoned both her and her sister Arianna, and the right-wing Italian Social Movement filled this gap. (She later helped found the breakaway political movement Brothers of Italy).

Trump’s Steve Bannon, the global alt-right guru, also regularly chats with Meloni. o_O:rolleyes:

In an effort to help Meloni tell her story, Bannon just rolled out an unprecedented Italian franchise of his “War Room” show. Inevitably, this warrants the question: Who is the real Meloni? Is she the responsible party leader who has been on an evolutionary path to morph Brothers of Italy into a post-populist party, or Viktor Orban’s friend in Rome? Only time will tell.

There is little doubt that Meloni’s rise in polls reflects widespread disgruntlement and protest votes, which in Italy we have seen at least since 2013. In fact, this was already the case with anti-establishment parties such as the Five Star Movement and Matteo Salvini’s League of recent years. Not unlike them, Meloni’s Brothers of Italy party has risen very quickly in the polls, from single-digit levels to around 25%.

she would get my vote kama ingekuwa Kenya

1- Somalis, Nigerians out/deported
2- homosexuals kina @Aka mpole jailed/killed
3- Abortionnn banned

The left only won the battle. The war is far from over

When you look at the Right & their platform, they’re the only group of people that remotely make sense compared to the left leaning politicians. You just get the wrong kind of vibes from the Left, almost like these guys are out of touch with the citizenry & don’t remotely push policies that are of benefit to them but to the globalists instead. Voting Left leaning politicians is just signing a death warrant on your country & everything that’s great about it.

  1. Yes, support her hapo. Nigerians have turned South Italy into an unlivable hell-hole like Lagos
  2. Mbwa wewe, let people be.
  3. Freedom of choice. Women should either choose to keep or not.

Any society in a crisis mode has a tendency to become extremist , intolerant and negatively radicalized …

Example:
Europe and USA and Japan ( 1910 -1950 ).
We all know the bad things that happened during this period …
The ultimate results were full blown Internal and External Conflicts on various fronts …

The same is about to happen once again …

Why are the societies in Europe and USA in a crisis? They all blame Russia.

Just how powerful is Russia?

Nonsense. …
The whole of America and Europe ( …and especially Russia …) is in a deep crisis …

Russia already has had 2 major meltdowns …

  • The Bolshevik Revolution.

  • The collapse of the USSR.

The coming 3rd one will be the final and total demise of Russia and Oligarchy as we know it …
Mankind is hardwired to seek freedom of thought , expression and liberty …

Infringe or attempt to restrict any of those freedoms at your peril … :D:D:D

[SIZE=7]Standoff as Italy stops male migrants from disembarking rescue ships[/SIZE]

By Alex Binley
BBC News

Charities have branded the actions of the Italian government “illegal” after it prevented 250 people from disembarking two migrant rescue ships.

There are 215 blocked on the Geo Barents and 35 on Humanity 1.

Children and people with medical issues were allowed to leave the ships in Catania, Sicily, but others were not. Two other rescue boats remain at sea.

The new Italian PM has promised to crack down on migrants traveling across the Mediterranean.

Italy is one of the main entry points into Europe and since the start of the year, 85,000 migrants have arrived on boats, according to the UN.
Migrants set sail in small, overcrowded boats from North Africa - often they get into distress and are rescued by charity vessels.

Some 35 men remain on the Humanity 1 ship after they were not allowed to disembark

In total 144 people were allowed to disembark the Humanity 1, which sails under a German flag, on Sunday morning. In the afternoon, 357 people were allowed off the Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF)-run Geo Barents, which sails under a Norwegian flag.

Italian Interior Minister Matteo Piantedosi said those who did not qualify as vulnerable would have to leave Italian waters and should be taken care of by the “flag state”.
However, Humanity 1’s captain is refusing to leave the port of Catania “until all survivors rescued from distress at sea have been disembarked”, said SOS Humanity, the German charity that operates it.
In a series of tweets, SOS Humanity added that "the law of the sea obliges him [the captain] to bring all those rescued from distress to a safe place.
“Survivors have the right to an individual protection check, which can only be done on land. Rejecting the 35 people seeking protection aboard Humanity 1 from territorial waters is a form of collective refusal and is therefore illegal.”
In tweets posted later on Sunday, SOS Humanity said it would launch legal action against the Italian government on Monday, claiming Italy’s actions violate European law and the Geneva Refugee Convention.

It added it was unlawful to not let all the migrants disembark and it would also launch legal proceedings in Catania, to allow those who remained on board the vessel to disembark and begin asylum applications.

MSF, which runs the Geo Barents, also hit out at the Italian government’s decision, saying it “is not considered legal under maritime law conventions”.
The charity, known in English as Doctors Without Borders, added that “a rescue operation is considered complete only when all of the survivors have been disembarked in a safe place”.
Both charities said everyone on board their ships was vulnerable as they had been rescued from the sea.
Two other boats run by non-governmental organizations remain at sea with no ports willing to accept them.
There are 93 people on the German-run Rise Above and 234 on the Ocean Viking, operated by the European charity SOS Mediterranee.

All four boats have reported people sleeping on floors and decks, the spread of fever-inducing infections and scabies, and food and medical supplies running low. Some migrants have been on the ships for more than two weeks.
Humanitarian groups and two Italian politicians have traveled to Sicily to protest against the process.
"Free all the people, free them,″ Italian lawmaker Aboubakar Soumahoro said, calling the government’s new policy “inhuman”.
Italy’s new Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni put the issue of migration at the center of her government in her maiden speech to MPs.
“We must stop illegal departures and human trafficking,” she said, but stressed that she does not intend “to question the right of asylum for those fleeing wars and persecutions”.
In a recent interview, she also said responsibility for the migrants on board lies with the country where the ship is registered, otherwise, it becomes a “pirate ship”.
