Update from September 26, 7:00 a.m.:

The victory of the legal alliance of Fratelli d'Italia, Lega Nord and Forza Italia is also becoming clearer on the morning after the election.

In the latest projection by the Italian television station Rai, the alliance received over 43 percent of the votes.

In the meantime, in addition to the projection for the Senate, there are also first projections for the distribution of votes in the House of Representatives.

However, as expected, the differences between the two chambers are marginal.

Update from September 25, 11:10 p.m.:

A preliminary final result of the Italian election will probably have to wait until Monday morning – but according to initial forecasts, the post-fascist Fratelli d'Italia are heading for an election victory.

The post-election surveys are initially characterized by large areas of fluctuation.

The broadcaster RAI1 saw the "alliance" of the right (including the small party Noi Moderati) with 41 to 45 percent of the vote.

Italy election: when will the result be?

Preliminary report:

Munich/Rome – Italy will elect a new parliament on Sunday (09/25/2022).

The result is also being eagerly awaited outside of the Apennine peninsula: According to the latest polls, a shift to the right in parliament seems possible.

And EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is already thinking of unpleasant consequences.

"If things go in a difficult direction, we have tools available," she told students at Princeton University.

On election day, however, Italy and Europe could be full of hope and fear.

A result early on Sunday evening is not only unlikely, it is even impossible: the polling stations will be open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Only then do the counts begin, immediately followed by the first projections and forecasts.

A preliminary result is not expected until Monday.

In Germany, polling stations always close at 6 p.m.

Result of the Italian election: polling stations open for a long time – and postal votes only from abroad

Another peculiarity of the Italian election procedure could shorten the counting process a little: there is no postal voting in the country.

Only Italians residing abroad may vote by post.

Even this clause has only been in force since 2006.

A possible price for the unusual regulation: a low turnout.

In 2018 it was still 73 percent.

Now, however, a very low turnout is expected.

The election date is also a novelty – for the first time since the Second World War, Italy is voting in the fall.

These are early elections because Italy's previous Prime Minister Mario Draghi resigned in the summer.

Result from Italy: Surveys point to strong shifts

It already seems clear that there will be some changes in the outcome of the election compared to the previous election.

The latest polls are from September 9th – Italy has a polling ban for the two weeks leading up to the election – but they point to an election victory for the post-fascist Fratelli d'Italia of frontwoman Giorgia Meloni.

The legal alliance of Fratelli, Lega and Forza Italia could move into the government.

Another special feature should also be noted: a third of the seats are allocated by majority voting.

The result of pure party votes is therefore not synonymous with the distribution of seats in parliament.

By the way, von der Leyen quickly got headwind for her statement.

Former Italian interior minister and head of the right-wing Lega, Matteo Salvini, demanded “an apology or resignation” from der Leyens on Friday, as he

told the

Corriere della Sera newspaper.

A spokesman for the President of the Commission rejected the impression that she had threatened the promising legal alliance involving the Lega.

It remains to be seen how the new government and the EU will arrange themselves - not only until the results are announced, but also until the government is formed.
