Italian Election Could Impact Future Of The EU

On March 4, Italians take to the polls in the general election. It's also seen as a referendum on the European Union that could see the continent's fourth largest economy (and seventh or eight largest in the world depending on which source) and G8 member join Britain in the country's version of Brexit dubbed Italexit.

It will be interesting to see how Lega Nord (and its leader Salvani) and Fratelli d'Italia (led by Giorgia Meloni) and other so-called 'right-wing' groups do in this election. They seem to have touched a nerve and do have substantial support but it will be up against established parties like The Five Star Movement (a party that was founded by a socialist comedian that seems to be rudderless) as well as Renzi's centre-left Democratic Party and the return of Silvio Berlusconi with Forza Italia.
