According to the leader of Nazione Futura, the Italian conservative movement, the outcome of the elections and the new government could bring strategic changes to the European Union.
Francesco Giubilei gave an interview to Mandiner discussing the consequences of the Italian elections
The results of the elections strongly affect the whole functioning of the European Union. Italy is third among the member states not only in population but also in terms of economy. North-African migration takes place largely through Italy, and in the future, even gas deliveries may arrive in Hungary through the southern country. Therefore, Italy plays an important role in shaping the policies.
By the end of the month, the composition of the new government will be announced to the public. It is very important what decisions the leaders of the three parties will make in regard to foreign policy and the economy. After ten years, the country has a conservative leadership again. This is a great opportunity for Italy to take a conservative direction in respect of the economy, immigration, family policy and the improvement of birth rates.

Italy has a great say in the policy-making process of the European Union. For instance, they can veto the “Green Deal”, which does not take into account important economic and social aspects.
“It is important to have a balance when it comes to political and professional figures, but I hope that conservative people will have a strong role in the government”, said Francesco Giubilei. Inflation and economic crisis are threatening the European Union. According to the leader of Nazione Futura, the Italian people and economy are in need of a new policy that takes the national interests into account. He does not reckon the new government would aim for the country’s exit from the European Union, however, implementing some positive changes will be necessary.
Giubilei also mentioned that Hungary and Viktor Orbán’s policies can serve as an example for Italy despite the number of differences between the two countries. For instance, the country has to reshape its family policy and improve birth rates. Orbán created excellent conservative ‘think tanks’ in Hungary, this could also be a good model to follow, Giubilei told to Mandiner.
