WE WILL CHANGE EUROPE: Salvini’s Party Surge In Regional Poll

Matteo Salvini’s League Party surge in the southern region of Basilicata helped end almost a quarter of a century of centre-left rule. It tripled its vote in a year and the League massively outshone their partners in national government, the 5* Movement.

The 5* Movement won 44.3 percent of the vote in the region in a March 2018 parliamentary ballot but dropped to around 20% with the League snapping at its heels on 18.8%. Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, leader of the 5* Movement, was in philosophical mood:

“5* has not shone in these recent elections, but we need to remain lucid and look at things in a broader context … the government is moving forward at great speed.”

Salvini, however, was understandably bullish as Europe approaches European Elections in which his Party is expected to perform well:

“The League has tripled its vote in a year … now we will change Europe.”

Basilicata represents the six successive win for the centre-right in Italy since the 5*/League government took power last year as Italians continue to strongly support the policies pursued by Salvini.
