The ultimate guide to who's who in the Italian general elections

The ultimate guide to who's who in the Italian general elections

After three centre-left prime ministers — Enrico Letta, Matteo Renzi, Paolo Gentiloni — over five years, Italians head again to the polls to elect a new national government on 4 March.

Democratic Party: The center-left force is being led by former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

These MPs split to form a party that veered further left called Liberi e Uguali (Free and Equal).

Pollsters have Forza Italia at around 15%, making them the third-largest single force in Italian politics.

Northern League: Euroskeptic and right-wing, this controversial party is known in Italy simply as Lega, with its leader Matteo Salvini allied with Berlusconi’s Forza Italia.
