ROME (Sputnik) – The center-right coalition is leading in Italy’s general election, winning 37.42 percent of votes in the upper chamber of the parliament – the Senate – after 65 percent of ballots were counted, the Italian Interior Ministry said Monday.

The center-right coalition consists of former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia, far-right Matteo Salvini’s Lega (formerly Lega Nord), right-wing Brothers of Italy, and the small party Us with Italy.

According to the ministry’s data, Lega won 18.3 percent, while Forza Italia received 14.2 percent.

Meanwhile, the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) has won 30.97 percent of votes in the upper house – the best result achieved by a separate party so far.
