(ANSA) – ROME, JUNE 14 – The right-wing Brothers of Italy (FdI) are still Italy’s leading party, but their lead over the center-left Democratic Party (PD) has shrunk to just 0.2% in the latest Euromedia poll for Rai TV.
Giorgia Meloni’s FdI is the only major party not to be part of Mario Draghi’s national unity government and it performed well in Sunday’s local elections, as did the PD.
According to Euromedia, the FdI garners 22.5% of voting intentions in the current legislative elections and the PD 22.3%.
The next legislative elections are expected in a year.
The FDI’s right-wing ally the League is third with 11.4% and the PD’s once anti-establishment ally the 5 Star Movement (M5S), currently the largest group in parliament, slipped to 11, 4% in fourth position.
The centrist Azione + Europa rose to 5.1% while Italexit rose to 3.1% and Italia Viva held steady at 2.6%. The Greens are down to 2%, while the two left forces Sinistra Italiana and LeU-Art 1 are respectively at 1.7% and 1.6%.
The centre-right coalition would get 45.9% if there were elections now, while the centre-left coalition would get 37% and the centrists 9.7%.
