NEXT year’s Italy election could see a eurosceptic, anti-establishment group become the biggest party in the country – setting alarm bells ringing in Brussels.

It could also lead to a vote on Italian membership of the eurozone as the Five Star Movement (5S) soars in the polls.

An Italian general election is set to be held in 2018 with eurosceptic 5S now predicted to be the largest party.

Party leader Luigi Di Maio said he would hold referendums on membership of the eurozone if elected and urged Brussels to look seriously at financial reform.

He said unless Brussels listened to his party’s many concerns he would hold a vote on whether to pull Italy from the single currency.

Mr Di Maio said: “If we succeed, Europe will be changed and we won’t need a referendum on the euro. Otherwise we’ll ask Italians if they want to stay in or not.

Earlier this month he said the referendum would be a “last resort” to be called only if it was not possible to ease European Union governance rules.

5S is predicted to emerge as the largest single party in the next parliament but it has repeatedly ruled out joining any coalition.

Italy has just introduced a new electoral system that is expected to handicap 5-Star, favouring instead mainstream political blocs and partnerships.

Nonetheless, the contrasting fortunes of 5S and the left-leaning Democratic Party have set alarm bells ringing in Europe as next year’s general election nears.

While a date has not yet been decided for the vote, the election could see the Democrats overtaken as the largest part in the country.
