The Democratic Party of Italy has recognized the electoral defeat on Sunday night, after the publication of the exit polls, which would give victory to the right-wing bloc, led by the far-right Georgia Meloni.

“Undoubtedly, we cannot – in light of the data seen so far – not attribute the victory to the right wing dragged by Giorgia Meloni. It is a sad afternoon for the country,” said the leader of the Democratic Party in the Chamber , Debora Serracchiani, at a press conference.

“We are facing a great responsibility and that responsibility must be played well in Parliament,” added the center-left politician.

Provisional results provided by exit polls have shown that a right-wing alliance led by Meloni’s Brothers of Italy party would win by winning more than 40 percent of the ballots, well ahead of left-wing parties, which They would add up to just over 25 percent.

If the results are confirmed, the leader of the Brothers of Italy is emerging as a clear candidate for prime minister, a position never held by a woman in Italy.
