After Italy's Election, 2 Rival Populist Parties Claim Right To Lead Next Government

Italian far-right League party leader Matteo Salvini gives the thumbs-up in Milan on Monday. Salvini said his right-wing coalition had the "right and the duty" to form a government after taking 37 percent of the vote in the weekend election.

The success of the 5-Star Movement and the right-wing League in Sunday’s election is the worst blow to the European Union since British voters chose to leave the EU two years ago.
