This week's episode looks back at the results from last weekend’s snap General Election in Italy which has likely resulted in their first female Prime Minister, Giorgia Meloni. As Italy prepares for a new right-wing government, Sam and Chern discuss the dynamics of the race and the performance of the main blocs. How were the right able to dominate the election in both Chambers? What demographics propelled the Brothers of Italy to first place? What is next for the Enrico Letta’s Democratic Party as they head back into Opposition? And was this election a disappointment for the Five Star Movement? All these questions, and more, answered in this week's podcast.
