No risk of right govt lurching to populism - Berlusconi

'I wouldn't be involved if there were' says ex-premier

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 27 - Ex-premier and Forza Italia leader Silvio Berlusconi has said there is no chance of the incoming right-coaltion government lurching towards populism.
    The next government looks set to be led by Giorgio Meloni as her right-wing Brothers of Italy (FdI) party was the driving force of the coalition's victory, picking up 26% of the vote on its own.
    "If I thought there were a risk of a populist turn, the government would not even take off," Berlusconi, whose FI got a better-than-expected 8% of the vote, said in an interview in Tuesday's Corriere della Sera.
    "Actually, (if there were) we would not even be allied with the other two parties in our coalition," he added, referring to FdI and Matteo Salvini's right-wing League. (ANSA).
