Clear victory for rightwing coalition, exit poll indicatesOK, the first exit poll is in, and it’s good news for Giorgia Meloni and the far-right Brothers of Italy.
According to the Consorzio Opinio Italia poll for Rai, the rightwing coalition has won between 41-45% of the vote and the left alliance 25-29.%. That would give the right a majority in both houses.
At this point we should make our regular health warning: Italian exit polls have a very chequered history, and are sometimes wrong. It’s well worth waiting for the projections to come.
