Rome, Sep 26th (Reuters)-The party of the post-fascist Giorgia Meloni, Fratelli d'Italia will reach 24.6 percent of votes in the parliamentary elections in Italy after the first projections by the Italian television station Rai. 8.5 percent of the votes go to the Lega of the former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini and 8 percent to the Forza Italia of the former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
