Italy’s new far-right government won a vote of confidence in the lower house of parliament Tuesday, after Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni outlined a programme reaffirming the country’s support for Ukraine and position within Europe.

The vote, which will be followed by another in the Senate Wednesday, was largely procedural as Meloni has a comfortable majority in parliament thanks to her coalition with Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia party and Matteo Salvini’s far-right League.
