Deputy Speaker of the European Parliament Katarina Barli is concerned about the leadership of the right-wing coalition in the elections in Italy.
In her opinion, George Meloni (leader of the “Brothers of Italy” party), who is tipped to be the Italian prime minister, will follow the example of politicians such as former US President Donald Trump and current Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban in the new post, RIA Novosti reports. .
MEP Thomas Weitz, co-chairman of the European Green Party, in turn expressed the opinion that the EU can only function as a unity, and Meloni in this sense “could be a disaster for Europe.”
“The foundations and shared values of the EU will be threatened if Italy, the EU’s third largest economy, is ruled by a coalition of post-fascists and far-right parties,” the politician said.
Recall, earlier it was reported that the right-wing coalition could get up to 65% of the seats in the Italian parliament, which would lead to the formation of a center-right government.
