Giorgia Meloni is Italy’s first far-right PM since WW II | Inside Story

Giorgia Meloni will lead Italy’s most-right wing administration since the fascist era of Benito Mussolini.
Her nationalist Brothers of Italy party won last month’s election, along with two others.
Matteo Salvini’s far-right League, and the controversial former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia were in the winning camp.

Social conservatism as well as anti-immigration and Eurosceptic rhetoric are part of Meloni’s political appeal.
She’s also voiced anger about Italy’s struggling economy.
But she’s pledging support for Ukraine, a stance different from her Russia-friendly allies Salvini and Berlusconi.
