Giorgia Meloni is moments away from an Italian victory



Giorgia Meloni is moments away from an Italian victory

Giorgia Meloni, the leader of Italy’s far-right Brothers of Italy party, is on course to become the country’s first female prime minister.

It comes off the back of the political bloc winning the most votes in Sunday’s parliamentary elections.

With nearly all the votes counted, Brothers of Italy have won around 33 per cent of the vote. Meloni’s main rivals have won around 27 per cent each.

These are the centre-right coalition, led by former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi and the centre-left coalition, led by incumbent Prime Minister Mario Draghi.

Her victory comes as a right-wing populist wave is sweeping across Europe. Far-right parties have made significant gains in France, Hungary and Poland in recent years.

But the success of Brothers of Italy comes as a surprise to many, considering the party only garnered 4 per cent of the vote just four years ago.

However, their ability to remain unified while other parties collapsed allowed them to take advantage of the situation.

Giorgia Meloni is now the likely prime minister, though it may be some time before she is officially nominated. This is largely due to President Sergio Mattarella’s involvement.

Meloni has worked hard to soften her image in recent years. Her allies hope that this will continue as she takes on a more prominent role in Italian politics.

She has pledged to govern for all Italians and has said her government will not betray voters’ trust.

Rome will be watching closely to see what direction Meloni and her party take the country in the coming months.

Why OPEC policy decisions will have a major impact on oil prices



Despite the fall in oil prices, OPEC and its allies policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.

In May 2023, the total number of rigs drilling for oil and gas was already down by around 7% when compared with its peak in December 2022.

Slower drilling activity eventually translates into slower production growth, creating a delay of up to 6 months.

In the meantime, high levels of production are keeping inventories elevated, especially in the case of gas, which is keeping prices under pressure.

OPEC and its allies are weighing the possibility of further oil supply cuts, despite the fall in oil prices.

OPEC+ and its allies led by Russia, pumps around 40% of the world’s crude.

So, its policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.
