They rejoice in Hungary, Poland, Sweden and in France, Marine Le Pen. Silence reigns in Brussels. Thus Europe welcomes the victory of the center-right Giorgia Meloni and prepares for Italy which, from the point of view of its political position, risks being the opposite of that of Mario Draghi. With all the ramifications of the case on the major negotiations that lie ahead between now and December, starting with those on the third tranche of the NRP funds.
In the Italian brotherhood Eurochamber, he sits with conservatives and reformists alongside Poles from Pis, the government and the Swedish Democrats, who have just gathered a loophole in the last election. On the other hand, the association with supporters of the National Rally Party. And the Jordan Bardella, MEP and “Big” from Marine Le Pen’s concertHe was among the first to rejoice. “The Italians gave a lesson in humility to the European Union which, in the voice of Mrs. von der Leyen, claimed to force a vote on them. No threat of any kind can stop democracy: European peoples raise their heads and assume their destiny!” he wrote in a tweet. Referring to the words of the Commission chief from New York, when she made clear on Thursday that if things in Italy “go into a difficult situation, the EU has the tools” to respond. Tools already used with Poland and Hungary.
Behind the veil of silence with which pro-European parties and EU institutions testify to the victory of the center-right, there is in fact above all fear: that Italy will cooperate with Hungary and Poland on a series of key issues, starting with those linked to the rule of law.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s rejoicing (“Congratulations Giorgia Meloni!”) and Tweet Palazz Orbán, political advisor to Hungarian Viktor Orbán, I wish exactly this: “Congratulations to Georgia Meloni, Matteo Salvini, Silvio Berlusconi for today’s elections! In these difficult times, more than ever, we need friends who share a common vision and approach to Europe’s challenges.” As Spain’s Vox far-right applauds: “Tonight millions of Europeans are pinning their hopes on Italy. Georgia Meloni has shown the way to a proud, free and sovereign Europe,” tweeted leader Santiago Abascal.
But there is another red line on which Brussels will not admit deviations: support for Ukraine, about which Meloni has already given great reassurance. The FdI leader, in July, had a stop at Eurocamera, reaffirming her full alliance with the positions of the West. Moreover, in Strasbourg, Ecr is the majority supporting Roberta Mezzola while around the Id group in which the League sits, the majority of the European Parliament has for some time lifted a kind of “healthy cordon”, as advocates of sovereignty call it. But the outcome of the Italian vote could change the balance in Strasbourg as well. EPP, for example, has not made any comments. His support for Forza Italia has been consistent and unwavering, while also focusing on the pro-European and Atlantic guarantees that Antonio Tajani’s party has made for years in the EU. But already in recent days, fear has been growing in the EPP about the weight Islamic financial institutions will have within the coalition.

Zemmour, Meloni proves that getting to power is possible

The free people who refuse to die.” Eric Zemmour, leader of the French nationalist party Reconquete writes in a note. He adds: “How can we not see this victory as evidence that yes, power can be reached?”
Sinistra Albee, “Terrible, the neo-fascists at the door”
The “terrible” neo-fascism is on our doorstep with Meloni’s victory in Italy. The rush of reactionary xenophobic and authoritarian poison has been confirmed everywhere in Europe. The caveat is serious: We need to build a left-wing alternative as a cure.” Manon Aubry, co-chair of the Left Group at Eurochamber, wrote in a tweet.
