The election results in Trentino-Alto Adige confirm the national trend and solidify the hegemony of the prime minister’s party in the coalition government.
The election results in Trentino-Alto Adige confirm what has already been seen in previous elections, at least in terms of the presence of a solid right-wing coalition in the country’s government. It must be said that these are special elections and national trends need to be filtered by the variables of political forces representing linguistic minorities and regional specificities. In this case, there are at least two analysis plans.
Meloni beats Salvini
In Alto Adige, the South Tiroler National Party achieved a seven-point lead compared to the previous election, with only 34.4% of the vote. The unfortunate outcome will significantly complicate the life of outgoing Governor Arno Kompatcher, who will now have to deal with a council attended by representatives of 12 political parties. Team K (11 percent) and the departed Süd Tiroler Freiheit (10.8 percent) are improving. The wind that blows across the West also blows in the Dolomites, where former Schützen commander Jürgen Wild Anderland’s “no vaccination” list recorded an astonishing 5.9 percent of the votes cast. We are running an aggressive campaign. against immigrants.
In terms of “Italy”, Fratelli d’Italia has doubled its alliance compared to five years ago, as well as the country as a whole. The former MSI became the first Italian-speaking party in history, attracting 6.1 percent. Also in the province of Trento, where Salvini and his men are claiming victory with Maurizio Fugatti’s apparent reaffirmation, the Northern Alliance list has lost eight MPs, leaving it at 3.1%, compared to 2018. 8 points less. In this case, the Northern League constituency that was “cannibalized” was the “No Trentini per Fugatti Presidente” list, which was much more than most expected, with four members on the council. It was decided that he would take the seat. In Via Bellerio, it is a game of minimizing the exponential rise of Fratelli d’Italia, which rises from 1.48 percent to his 12 percent by mathematically adding up his two lists that collect 24 percent.
The elections in Trentino-Alto Adige are also part of a metaphorical “prelude” to next year’s European elections, in which parties compete under a proportional system rather than running in coalitions. I want you to remember that. “All against all” could shake things up in the coming months, both for the majority coalition and for an already divided and contentious opposition camp. In addition to the “derby” between the League and its Italian brothers, the spotlight is now on Forza Italia, which has increasingly disappeared following the death of its leader and founder Silvio Berlusconi. It is beginning to look as if the party is on the verge of a crisis, and its momentum is waning. Talent left as voters.
It will be interesting to see what happens when the budget reaches Congress. Although the government explicitly asks majority powers not to bring forward amendments to speed up the approval process, parties typically ask lobby groups that form a significant part of the electorate to “electoral gifts”. It is precisely through those amendments that the We cannot exclude the possibility that there was some kind of “stumbling block” there. Perhaps with the cooperation of the Opposition, we might be able to get the “strategic” amendments approved, even though we don’t even remotely know the numbers.
