Italy’s right-wingers vow to introduce direct presidential elections

If the right wins the parliamentary elections in Italy, the country’s presidential elections will become direct (nationwide), according to the right-wing manifesto published on August 11.

Now the formal head of the Italian state (the prime minister has more real powers) is elected at a joint meeting by the deputies of both houses of parliament and representatives of the regional authorities.

Parliamentary elections in Italy will be held on 25 September. Sociologists believe that the right-wing parties of Giorgi Meloni, Matteo Salvini and Silvio Berlusconi will win, and Meloni will become prime minister.
