The conservative Forza Italia party is considering joining the right-wing extremist league under the leadership of former interior minister Matteo Salvini, according to sources close to the talks in the “Corriere della Sera”.
Another right-wing extremist party, the Brothers of Italy, will not join this “merger”, as the media describe it, because Berlusconi fears that the figure of their leader Giorgia Meloni could harm the new bloc.
From the league it is made clear that the incorporation of Forza Italia is not an “annexation”, but an amalgamation of parties that could take shape in new talks in the middle of next week
This information appears after the formation of a center-right formation like Valor Italia in Parliament. In response, Berlusconi valued the possibility of creating a “federation of center-right forces”.
