Participation in the Italian elections at 7:00 p.m. this Sunday has reached 51%, as reported by the country’s authorities.
More than 50.8 million Italians are called to the polls and will be able to vote until 11:00 p.m. this Sunday, when the polling stations will close their doors. They will elect the 400 deputies of the Chamber and the 200 senators, a third less than in the last general elections after the constitutional reform promoted by the Five Star Movement.
The latest polls project a victory for Giorgia Meloni, leader of the far-right Brothers of Italy party. If so, she would become the first woman to chair the Council of Ministers in the country.
