Far-right leader Giorgia Meloni won big in Italian elections on Sunday (Sep 25), the first projections suggested, putting her eurosceptic populists on course to take power at the heart of Europe.

Meloni’s Brothers of Italy party, which has neo-fascist roots, has never held office but looks set to form Italy’s most far-right government since the fall of dictator Benito Mussolini during World War II.

Projections published by the Rai public broadcaster and Quorum/YouTrend both put Brothers of Italy on top, at between 24 and 26 per cent of the vote, with Meloni favourite to become her country’s first female prime minister.
