Far-right Meloni assumes today in Italy

Giorgia Meloni on Friday formed the new governing coalition to give Italy its first far-right government since the end of World War II and the first ever headed by a woman.

A presidential official announced that Meloni and his cabinet will be sworn in on Saturday. Brothers of Italy, a party of neo-fascist origin, was the most voted in the national election last month.

Hours before the formation of the new government, Meloni, a 45-year-old career politician, told the press that she and her allies had unanimously asked President Sergio Mattarella for the mandate to govern.

Winning the head of government caps the remarkable rise, against all odds, of the Brothers of Italy, the party Meloni co-founded in December 2012 and which, during its early years, was considered a fringe right-wing movement.

Meloni made no public comment before leaving the Quirinal presidential palace. Earlier in the day, he had met with Mattarella and two of his main — and sometimes troublesome — right-wing allies: Matteo Salvini and Silvio Berlusconi.

in short time

Mattarella told reporters that the government was formed in a “short time” after the September 25 election. After the previous elections, in 2018, he took three months to form a new government coalition.
