Giorgia Meloni, leader of the right-wing party Fratelli d’Italia, is seeking cooperation with the European Union, but her voting record in the EU Parliament raises doubts about her pro-European stance. Despite expressing support for collaboration with the EU, her voting behavior has caused skepticism about her true intentions within the EU.

Meloni and her party have expressed willingness to cooperate with the EU, including supporting sanctions against Russia and providing aid to Ukraine. However, her voting patterns in the EU Parliament have raised questions about her commitment to a pro-European agenda. Critics accuse her of legitimizing right-wing ideologies and eroding barriers to extremism. Meloni’s voting alignment with the far-right Identity and Democracy (ID) group, including joint votes with the AfD, has drawn criticism from the Green Party. They have called on Ursula von der Leyen to seek majorities within democratic parties, expressing concerns about the trivialization of right-wing extremist parties. Despite efforts to collaborate with the EU and public statements affirming a pro-European stance, doubts persist about Giorgia Meloni’s true goals within the EU.
