Giorgia Meloni's Brothers of Italy party receives 22-26 percent of the vote according to Rai's polling station survey and her right-wing coalition looks to gain a large advantage over the left.

If she is allowed to form a government, Giorgia Meloni will be the country's first female prime minister.
