Warning by Ursula: The EU is cold-sweated. Yes, the Bloc is feared and currently under trauma from the election results in Italy. According to current trends, the Giorgia Meloni-led Brothers of Italy party is on course to capture both houses of commons and the Senate.
Meloni is set to become Italy’s first woman prime minister. According to the Party’s official statement, Italians have given the right-wing group a clear mandate to govern and that she would lead a government for all Italians.
Now, Brussels is in a huff, it is not ready to accept the mandate of Italians. The chief of the European Commission Ursula Von Der Leyen had issued a blood-curdling warning to common Italians. Now, Italians are leaving no stone unturned to despise the bloc.
The Warning of Ursula!
First off, let’s talk about the warning which Ursula gave to Italians ahead of crucial elections. As the campaign for Italian elections was about to end. Brussels hopped into the elections and warned Italians to avoid voting for Giorgia Meloni or any conservative.
Reportedly, the European Commission chief had said, “EU is willing to work with any democratic government. However, that’s the beauty of democracy. We’re sometimes slow. We talk a lot, I know. But that’s democracy too,”
“Still, we’ll see if things go in a difficult direction – I’ve spoken about Hungary and Poland – we have tools,” she further added.
These heinous comments left Brothers of Italy and its supporters in a huff. Matteo Salvini, leader of the League, one of the members of the three-party coalition, wrote on Twitter, “Shameful arrogance. Respect the free, democratic, and sovereign vote of the Italian people! Friends of all, servants of none,”
Ursula Von Der Leyen’s words infuriated the Italians. Notably, this was the EU’s last-ditch attempt to sway a national election. This strategy is similar to the one used by the United States which accused the RW Italian parties of funding the Russian war.
However, only former PM Mario Draghi realized at the time that this action might further polarise the voters towards Meloni.
There is no notion that the US was the cause of the polarization. However, Ursula undoubtedly polarised the electorate in favour of Meloni.
A Resounding Answer!
Despite being warned by the EU, the Italians have answered Ursula in a very resounding manner. As the voting ended, Exit Polls are indicating that Giorgia Meloni is all set to become the first female Prime Minister of Italy. Her party, the Brothers of Italy, is predicted to win between 22-26% of the vote.
Furthermore, Meloni’s coalition is expected to cover 2/3rd of Italy’s senate and the house of commons. This is for the first time since 2008, that the Italian conservatives are sitting in such a comfortable position.
Streets are filled with joy and happiness, whereas anti-EU Italians are leaving no stone unturned to lambast the EU. In some videos available on the internet, a group of Italian voters went to EU headquarters in Rome, removed the EU flag, and replaced it with the flag of Italy.
Some time ago, a group of Italian patriots went to EU headquarters in Rome, removed EU flag and replaced it with the Italian one. The squalid threats of Ursula von der Leyen do not scare the Italians and cannot go unnoticed. Italy belongs to the Italian people. Get up Italy 🇮🇹! pic.twitter.com/y9uCueYDod

As the results were underway, supporters of the Brothers of Italy also raised slogans against the EU and particularly against Ursula.
In the end, when it became evident that it was Meloni all the way in Italy, Giorgia Meloni did what was anticipated for the long haul. Claiming her victory against the EU, Giorgia Meloni for the first time ever after winning attacked the EU.
In her victory speech, Giorgia Meloni stressed: “Thanks Italy!” History is written. Italy belongs to the Italians, not to Ursula von der Leyen!”
The outcome of Italy has finally occurred which the EU has been fearing since the beginning of the campaign. This is a wake-up call for Brussels as Giorgia Meloni and the Brothers of Italy are now formally entering Rome. Meloni is armed to teeth to take on Brussels. Italy’s politics is getting more fascinating than ever.
