Elections will be held in Italy on Sunday. If anyone has a chance of winning a parliamentary majority, it’s the right-wing bloc and the eternal Berlusconi.

On Sunday, March 4, Italy will elect a new parliament – and until a few months ago, at least the sure loser was certain: the right around Silvio Berlusconi. The outcome of the elections was open, but one thing seemed clear, if the pollsters were to be believed: The Partito Democratico (PD) under Matteo Renzi, which had been in power in Rome until then, would win the race – with the fundamental opposition Movimento5Stelle (M5S – the 5-Star Movement) under its leading candidate Luigi Di Maio .
