Together with other smaller parties, Italy’s center left covers 38% of votes, according to pollster Istituto Piepoli, which conducted the study for ANSA. Italy’s centre right accounts for 34.5% of the electorate, with three-time premier Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia maintaining the biggest portion at 20%. Comedian-turned-politician Beppe Grillo’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), Italy’s second-biggest party in terms of votes at last year’s general election, is now third with 18%. The poll was conducted Monday on 500 people. IMG id=mediaViewer title=”” alt=”” src=””ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
