Italy likely to face ‘Fresh Election’


As all efforts to forge an alliance have failed to make a positive result in the European country of Italy which recently received an inconclusive election result, the Italian government is likely to declare a fresh election to break the inconclusiveness against which the country is fighting.

When the result of the Italian election was declared, the anti-establishment party, Five Star Movement, arrived first and the anti-European Union, Northern League, emerged in the second position.

Unfortunately, neither the Five Star Movement nor the Northern League had enough supporters to form a government by their own. Importantly, both of them were unwilling to talk with each other about the possibilities of forming a government and with other parties such as the Right-Wing Forza and Centre-Left Democratic Party which have the potential to support them to form a government.

At this moment, it is not clear when will the proposed fresh election take place. It is assumed that there might not be an election before the end of this year.

President Sergio Mattarella, who has the power to make a final say in this issue, has urged the political parties to consider all other policies before zeroing in to the possibility of a fresh election.

Will a new election help any anti-establishment and anti-EU parties?
