Salvini's right-wing coalition lost in the left-wing stronghold of Emilia-Romagna



The RIGHT coalition led by the Matteo Salvini League failed to defeat the left Democratic Party (PD)-led coalition in the province of Emilia-Romagna, with the left ruling for 75 years, while in the province of Calabria, the right won.

According to an exit poll by RAI television, PD candidate and coalition partner, current provincial president Stefano Bonaccini wins 48.2 percent of the vote and League and coalition candidate Lucia Borgonzoni 45.9 percent, while SWG poll gives Bonaccini 51.8 percent. and Borgonzoni 41.5 percent.



In the Italian regional elections for presidents of provinces and provincial councils, two large coalition blocks of the formal name of the center-right coalition and the left-center coalition are usually formed.

“Emilia-Romagna sent a signal. Salvini knows how to talk about problems, but she doesn't know how to solve them, and people responded,” said PD leader Nicola Zingarretti.

Salvini has not yet admitted defeat

Salvini has come along and across Emilia-Romagna and has visited more than 100 municipalities in the province in recent weeks to secure the victory, which he hoped could overthrow Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte's government.

Emilia-Romagna is one of Italy's richest provinces, with an unemployment rate of just 5 percent, half the national average. It has been a stronghold of the Left for generations.

Salvini has not yet acknowledged the defeat in Emilia-Romagna and has said he is awaiting the release of the official election results.

“After 70 years, the competition finally came. Previously, the match was always decided before it started,” Salvini said, adding that he was proud to challenge the left in that province.

In the 2014 elections, the left bloc won 49.1 percent of the vote, the right 29.8 percent, and the Five Star Movement 13.3 percent (M5S).

Berlusconi's candidate wins in Calabria

According to exit polls, the right-wing coalition won in Calabria, a province in southern Italy.

Berlusconi's Forward Italy Party member Jole Santelli won 52 percent of the vote, according to a SWG poll.

Santelli was a candidate of the same right-wing coalition as in Emilia Romagna, consisting of the Salvini League, the Berlusconi Party and the Brothers of Italy Party.

According to the same poll, left-wing candidate Filippo Callipo wins 30 percent of the vote and 7.4 percent of the M5S candidate.

Political analysts predict that the election results will strengthen the Democratic Party's coalition position, which won fewer votes in the 2018 election than the M5S, which was the relative winner of the election.

Originally after the elections, the M5S and League government was formed with non-partisan Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, from whom Salvini, encouraged by polls by which the League was the single strongest party in Italy, came out and tried unsuccessfully to call early elections.
