Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni's far-right party has emerged victorious in Italy's European elections, securing 28% of the votes. This triumph has bolstered her leadership both at home and across Europe.

The Brothers of Italy party has not only confirmed its position as the country's most popular party but has also improved its performance from the 26% achieved in the 2022 general elections, according to projections by state broadcaster RAI.

As Meloni continues to strengthen her role in Europe, she faces significant challenges ahead, particularly regarding Italy's fragile public finances and the upcoming 2025 budget.
