Front Bench: Italy has just given Europe its latest anti-establishment shock, but don't expect Brussels to listen

The anti-establishment Movimento 5 Stelle (Five Star Movement) look to have won by far the biggest share of the vote (approx. 30 per cent). Brussels' preferred option, the Right-wing coalition led by former PM Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia are expected to win around 32-35 per cent of the vote. That might be enough for a razor-thin majority.

Otherwise, Italy is set for a hung parliament and months of political wrangling.
