in News/World by

Matteo Salvini, the leader of Italy’s anti-migrant euroskeptic League party, says the center-right coalition has won “the right and the duty to govern” Italy.

Salvini said Monday the result indicates a center-right coalition will lead the next government and that his party had would lead the center-right, after eclipsing coalition partner Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia in the vote.

The League jumped from 4 percent of the vote five years ago to nearly 18 percent in Sunday’s vote, ahead of Forza Italia, which had nearly 14 percent.

Salvini also indicated he was not interested in what he called “strange coalitions,” such as having the League join in a government with the populist 5-Star Movement.
