On Saturday, October 22, George Meloni took the oath and officially assumed the post of Prime Minister of Italy. As reported by the BBC, the new coalition government took office this morning.

Giorgia Meloni became the first woman to hold the post of Prime Minister of Italy. A day earlier, Italian President Sergio Mattarella had tasked her with forming a new Italian government, and the official quickly chose 24 ministers. Now the executive power in the country is represented by members of three parties: “Brothers of Italy”, “League” headed by Matteo Salvini and “Forward, Italy”, which is officially led by Antonio Tajani, and unofficially by former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

The 45-year-old official leads the Brothers of Italy party, which won parliamentary elections last September. The political force supports NATO and Ukraine, while the “League” and “Forward, Italy” sympathize with Russia, in particular, Silvio Berlusconi is called a friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The “Brothers of Italy” adhere to the right-wing ideology, advocates tougher immigration rules, restricting abortions, and banning same-sex marriages.

Matteo Salvini and Antonio Tajani have been appointed Deputy Prime Ministers and Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Infrastructure respectively. The Ministry of Internal Affairs was headed by Matteo Piantedosi, known for his fight against illegal migrants, the Ministry of Justice – Carlo Nordio, the Ministry of Defense – Guido Crosetto, both of the latter belong to the Brothers of Italy. Giancarlo Giorgetti of the League became Minister of Economy, Adolfo Urso (“Brothers of Italy”) became Minister of Economic Development, Paolo Zangrillo (“Forward Italy!”) became Minister of Energy.

To the new government headed by Giorgi Meloni needs to submit a state budget plan to the European Union by the end of the month, and then develop a strategy for economic recovery after the pandemic. In 2023, production is predicted to fall in Italy (a recession), so it will be more difficult for the prime minister and her team to fulfill campaign promises, primarily tax cuts and pension increases.

In July 2022, Mario Draghi resigned from his post Prime Minister of Italy. After that, the President of the country decided to dissolve the parliament.
