Analysis of the shifting dynamics of the populist radical right in Italy by Populism in Action’s Principal Investigator Dr. Daniele Albertazzi was quoted in “Could Giorgia Meloni be Italy’s first female prime minister?” an article for Politico Europe written by Hannah Roberts and published on 12/05/21.
Daniele Albertazzi explains that Meloni poses:
“a realistic threat” to Salvini’s leadership of the right-wing alliance… She is in a very good place.”
“The right-wing parties have a long history of working together [having] governed together for twenty five years…
Meaning if the Brothers of Italy come ahead of the League in a future election:
“…it is hard see how anyone can stop her becoming prime minister,”
