The Rise of Giorgia Meloni: Italy's first woman PM? – BBC Newsnight

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Leader of the far-right Brothers of Italy Giorgia Meloni is on track, according to some polls, to become Italy’s first female Prime Minister from a party with a history of fascism.

With the fall of Mario Draghi’s government and an election scheduled in September are Meloni and the Brothers of Italy the likely new government? And what would they do if they take power?

As the far right Brothers of Italy have climbed the polls, so too have Italy’s borrowing costs after the country took a huge EU Covid loan, stoking fears of a renewal of the Eurozone debt crisis.

Newsnight’s Policy Editor Lewis Goodall speaks to Brothers of Italy Mayor Pierluigi Biondi and Democratic Party Vice-President Debora Serracchiani about what Italians and Europe can expect if she becomes PM.

As someone whose grandfather fought at Sicily and across the Italian mainland, who nearly died at Monte Cassino trying to rid Italy of fascism, this is just painful to watch.

Islam is a religion that calls for the worship of God alone, who has no partner, and that Muhammad is the last of the messengers. The Qur’an is the last book of God. It is one copy that has not been distorted. Scientists prove scientifically things that were discovered only in recent years, such as the stages of the formation of the fetus and many other facts that God has mentioned in the Qur’an to prove the authenticity of the Qur’an. That is, from God, and to establish an argument against the people and upon those who heard of this, God is the one who created you and He is the one who will send you after the grave to the reckoning. Have you not wondered one day who holds the heavens and the earth to pass away, and who provides for you and who created you from dust, and where you are when you sleep and this is an example of the grave And sleeping after it is an example of the resurrection of the resurrection.

Non voglio vivere in un Paese governato da un Politico fascista! Mio nonno era un partigiano e ha combattuto contro i nazisti e i fascisti per la liberta'in Italia. Giorgia Meloni non vuole che Italia sia un Paese libero.
