ITALIANS are hailing their general election results “our Brexit” after voters backed non traditional parties in their droves as Steve Bannon branded the vote a “revolution”.

Vincenzo Boccia, the 30th President of Confindustria, an Industrial employers’ group, said the election results in southern Italy “were a bit like our own Brexit”, with the small middle class voting “differently from expected”.

He said the vote was “a vote against traditional parties, it is not just a question of income”.

The Italian elections that were held on March 4 ended in stalemate, with an alliance of centre-right and far-right parties falling 49 seats short of a majority in the lower house of parliament.

The largest single party was the 5-Star Movement (M5S) led by Luigi Di Maio, which was 95 seats adrift and does not have enough seats to govern on its own.

Italians in the south of the country shook up politics after they took to the polls and gave the anti-elite M5S their backing.

In contrast, the wealthy northern part of the country threw its support behind right wing party – the League (Lega).

Former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, who lost out is now jostling for the defeated Democratic Party (PD) to help his centre-right bloc form a government, saying Italy had to avoid a swift return to the polls.

But, Matteo Salvini, the head of the League party said: “The Parliament must be presided by Lega and M5S, the winning parties.”

“I think that doing the opposite of what Italians chose last week would be madness, and there are two political forces that have won the elections”.

“I will do all that is humanly possible to respect the mandate that Italians have given us, which is to be president of the Council, but without alliances that contradict our program. This was the program chosen by Italians”.

Steve Bannon, US President Donald Trump’s former advisor has thrown his support behind Mr Salvini.

He told the Front National congress in France: “Italy is the heart of our revolution. I prefer Salvini.”
