League at 24.2%, PD 17.4%, M5S and FdI 17% in new poll

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 16 – If Italy were to go to the polls
today, the nationalist League party of former interior minister
Matteo Salvini would top the vote with 24.2%, the SWG polling
agency said Tuesday in its weekly survey.
    The League’s score is slightly up on last week.
    The centre-left Democratic Party (PD), which has switched
leaders from Lazio Governor Nicola Zingaretti to former premier
Enrico Letta amid internal turmoil, was down almost two points
at 17.4% but was still the second biggest party.
    This was a tad ahead of its coalition partner, the populist
5-Star Movement (M5S), on 17%, up a bit on last week.
    The nationalist Brothers of Italy (FdI) party, the only major
group not to be backing Mario Draghi’s national unity
government, is also on 17%.
    Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi’s centre-right Forza Italia party,
once the dominant party in the conservative field, is down
slightly on 6.5%.
    The centrist Azione and Italia Viva (IV) parties have 3.2% and
2.2% respectively.
    IV took a hit after its leader, ex-premier and former PD leader
Matteo Renzi, pulled down the last government led by Giuseppe
    Three other parties, the pro-EU Più Europa, Italian Left and the
Greens, all have around 2% of support currently, SWG reported.
