Anti-migrant League Party Wins Big in Italian Regional Vote

Monday, 30 April 2018 10:37 AM EDT

ROME (AP) — Italy's right-wing League party has a new regional election win, fueling its drive to govern the entire country.

Nearly final results on Monday showed the anti-migrant League's candidate for governor, Massimiliano Federiga, capturing 57 percent of the votes cast Sunday in the northeast Friuli Venezia Giulia region. The victory expands the League's solid dominance in Italy's affluent north.

League senator Roberto Calderoli said the latest triumph should make Italy's president "reflect" on his next move in trying to nudge the country's squabbling parties into forming a national coalition government following an election in March.

The populist 5-Star Movement, which became Parliament's largest party in the March 4 vote, did badly in Sunday's ballot.
