Italian Leftist Movements Gather to Create New Group Ahead of 2018 Elections

ROME – Several leftist political movements in Italy gathered on Sunday in Rome in order to create a new alliance ahead of the 2018 general election.

Representatives from the Democratic and Progressive Movement (MDP), Sinistra Italia and Possibile said the new Libere e Uguali (Free and Equal) list they would be grouped under would give the Italian electorate a center-left alternative to the governing Democratic Party (PD).

The aim of this new group, which is to be led by Senate President Pietro Grasso, is to “fight the regressive right,” said MDP leader Pier Luigi Bersani ahead of the meeting.

The alliance’s creation followed the recent approval of a new electoral law that introduced a mixed proportional and first-past-the-post voting method to Italy, making it almost impossible for a single party to acquire the necessary majority to rule alone, therefore forcing the formation of large coalitions.

The upcoming 2018 general election, which is yet to be scheduled but can be called starting from February, is to be held under the new legislation.
