“I will make everyone proud to be Italian.” Giorgia Meloni assumes victory in the elections

Noting that he does not like to “make judgments about what is happening politically and electorally” in other countries, the head of state considered that the the information available at the time was “still very incomplete” and said that “the Italian electoral system is very complex.”

Obviously, Italy is very important because – regardless of the judgment on the result, which I cannot make as President of the Republic – it is one of the great European nations, one of the great European economies. And at this very sensitive time, stability in the major European economies is also critical,” he said.

The President of the Republic warned that “financial markets are very sensitive to anything that means unpredictability or indefinite solutions”, and added: “We are going to wait. It is the most important European election in the near future.“.

Asked about the consequences that these Italian elections may have in the European framework, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa replied: “I don’t know, let’s see what happens.”

However, he stressed that “politics is done a lot by leaders, and European leaders depend on national leadership”, especially in countries with greater economic weight, such as France, Germany and Italy.

So it is these leaders who meet, and the European Council is gaining in importance. The Commission is very important, but the European Council has a decisive weight in refining decisions between states”, said Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

More than 50 million Italians were called this Sunday to vote in the Italian legislative elections in which, due to partisan fragmentation, no party is expected to obtain a sufficient majority to govern alone.
