Has Italy turned right?



The first results of today’s parliamentary election are being broadcasted by media and newspapers’ TV channels. As of today the Movimento 5 Stelle is the first party in Italy . It is followed by the centre-right coalition with Lega Nord and Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia. The centre left party which was leading the government has collapsed to 19%. Italy has turned to the right following other European countries. The campaign centred on immigration and ‘Italy first’ while unemployment in the South is at 29%, the debt to GDP at 130% second only to Greece, economic growth sluggish. We will see in the next few months what this election means for Europe as well.
