Italian Election Results Raise Possibility of #Italeave Coalition Government

Voters in Italy went big for anti European Union parties in the country's election over this past weekend. The 5 Star Movement won just under one third of the vote leaving it with a plurality of the parlimentary seats to be allocated. The traditional leftist pantsuit Democratic party managed less than 19 percent of the vote leaving it likely to be shut out of the upcoming effort to build a government. Two generally right wing parties by Italian standards Lega and Forza Italia won 17.7 and 13.9 percent of the vote. Make Italy, Great Again!
