ITALY could show their anger towards European Union’s migration policy in the upcoming election with a surge in votes for anti-establishment parties Five-Star Movement and Lega.
More than a third of the participants asks for a reduction of the number of migrants reaching Italian borders and calls for their repatriation.
The parties which better voiced this discontent with pledges in their manifestos and promises during the heated campaign, the Five-Star Movement and right-wing party Lega, are currently leading the preference polls.
Matteo Salvini, leader of Lega told Italian daily newspaper Repubblica “Europe has been mocking Italy for years”.

Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon hits Rome as far-right candidate runs for prime minister of Italy
Steve Bannon, a former senior advisor to President Donald Trump, is in Rome just days before the Italian elections.
A leading candidate for the premiership in those elections is Matteo Salvini, whose far-right Lega Nord party espouses anti-immigrant policies.
Lega Nord's slogan is "Italians First," an echo of Trump's "America First."
Why the Italian elections are no test for the European Union
The EU sees what it wants to see in Italy, ignoring corruption and embracing Berlusconi as the man to save it from populism
