ČRo Plus: Italian general election still without a clear front-runner

Alexandr Lagazzi commented on the upcoming Italian election which will be held on 4 March.

What are the major topics, is it the migration and security issues connected wirth? Will we see a comeback of Silvio Berlusconi? 

According to Alexandr Lagazzi, the hot topics are migration, employment and pensions.

"While the current center-left rulling party is supporting the accepting of migrants, stressing the humanitarian aspect, it also says that the migrants have to be redistributed to the other member states of the EU. Right-wing opposition is strictly against migration and says that we need to completely stop the flow of migrants a repatriate the current asylum seekers back to their countries of origin."
