Salvini launches transnational League of Leagues “to fight European elites in next year’s European Parliament elections”

“We will govern for the next 30 years,” Matteo Salvini, Italian Minister of Interiori and Lega leader told the faithful at their annual gathering at their spiritual birthplace of Pontida in northern Italy, ANSA reports. The League of Leagues, he said, would “bring together all the free and sovereign movements” ahead of next year’s EP elections. That vote will be a “referendum between the people and the elite”, the rightwing populist leader said.

Last polls suggest Lega to be over 30%.
