Italy awaits election verdict

Centre-right tipped to win, turnout down

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 25 - Italy is awaiting the outcome of Sunday's general election, with polling stations open until 23:00.
    The centre-right coalition, featuring Giorgia Meloni's Brothers of Italy (FdI), Matteo Salvini's League and Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia (FI), is tipped to win.
    The other big bloc is the centre-left alliance led by ex-premier Enrico Letta's Democratic Party (PD).
    The 5-Star Movement (M5S) and the centrist 'Third Pole', made up of ex-premier Matteo Renzi's Italia Viva and former industry minister Carlo Calenda's Azione, are both running separately from the big blocs.
    At 19:00 the turnout for voting for the Lower House was 51.14%, down from 58.40% at the same stage of the 2018 general election, the interior ministry said. (ANSA).
