Italy will hold an early election on Sept. 25, with a center-right coalition currently leading in the polls.

President Sergio Mattarella officially called the vote and dissolved parliament on Thursday, after Mario Draghi resigned as prime minister earlier in the day. A bloc led by Giorgia Meloni’s Brothers of Italy could have a clear majority, according to the most recent polling.
