  • Italy’s right-wing parties, heading for victory in September elections, released a plan for government Thursday (11 August), promising low taxes, “defence of the homeland”, EU reform and support for NATO and Ukraine.
  • Opinion polls put Giorgia Meloni’s post-fascist Brothers of Italy on course to lead the eurozone’s third-largest economy after the 25 September vote.
  • The parties promise “full adherence to the European integration process” but seek a “more political and less bureaucratic” bloc — and call for a “review” of EU rules on public spending and economic governance.
