KKE: Statement on the result of the elections in Italy

Following the result in the Italian general election and the victory of the far-right bloc, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) issued a statement (here in Greek).
The statement reads:

"The electoral result in Italy, with a record abstention and the far-right as the first power, only foreshadows the continuation and escalation of the anti-people policy in the neighboring country. The “anti-systemic” cheap-talks of Meloni, the leader of the far-right bloc, cannot hide the assurances of loyalty to EU and NATO, her alignment with their plans in the war between thieves in Ukraine and the aspiration of the Italian bourgeois class, through the recovering of the far-right, to shield the interests of the third strongest economic power in the intensifying competition within the EU. 

The sharpened popular discontent in Italy, before being trapped in the networks of the far-right populism, had been defused repeatedly in the liberal and social democratic governments, like the ones of “technocrats” of Draghi type, with the common denominator being the refutation of the people's expectations. After all, the notion of the “lesser evil” promoted by these governments paved the way for the strengthening of the extreme right in Italy.

A real pro-people way out, in Italy, Greece and everywhere, is to strengthen the struggle against the barbaric capitalist system and its respective governmental administrators. Only with the strong Communist Party can the reactionary forces and the anti-people strategy of the capital receive a decisive blow, so that the correlations can be changed in favor of the people".
