French Prime Minister says, regarding Italian election, that EU has certain values to uphold

French Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne told RMC Radio that while she did not want to comment on Italians’ democratic choices, she did want to emphasize that the European Union has certain ideals to defend, such as abortion and human rights.

Borne was commenting in the wake of Italy’s election, in which Giorgia Meloni looked set to become Italy’s first woman prime minister at the head of its most right-wing government since World War Two, after leading a conservative alliance to triumph at Sunday’s vote.
