Composition of the Italian Parliament following the March 2018 general election
The official March 4, 2018 general election results published by Italy's Ministry of the Interior - available on this website's Italy page - do not indicate the specific party affiliation of single-member college candidates elected by party alliances. This omission becomes particularly problematic in light of the fact that one of the parties in the incoming populist coalition cabinet - namely the Northern League - won an unspecified number of single-member college seats as part of an alliance with other center-right parties, which nevertheless will not be part of the new government.

Fortunately, the Italian Chamber of Deputies and Senate websites publish the parliamentary group affiliation of deputies and senators, which I have used to prepare the tables shown below, summarizing the new party composition of both houses of the Italian Parliament. That said, it must be underscored that the figures published on this entry do not reflect changes in party membership or parliamentary group affiliation since members of the newly-elected Parliament were sworn in last March.

As such, following the general election held in Italy last March, the party composition of the Chamber of Deputies stood as follows:

   Ticket       Italy
Seats
      Overseas
Seats
      Total
Seats
  
   Forza Italia, Lega, Fratelli d'Italia, UDC       262       3       265   
      Lega       123       2       125   
      Forza Italia       103       1       104   
      Fratelli d'Italia       32       0       32   
      Noi con l'Italia - UDC       4       0       4   
   Movimento 5 Stelle       226       1       227   
   PD, +Europa, SVP-PATT, Civica Popolare, Italia Europa Insieme       116       6       122   
      Partito Democratico       107       5       112   
      SVP - PATT       4       -       4   
      +Europa       2       1       3   
      Civica Popolare       2       0       2   
      Italia Europa Insieme       1       -       1   
      Union Valdôtaine       0       -       0   
   Liberi e Uguali       14       0       14   
   Movimento Associativo Italiani all'Estero       -       1       1   
   Unione Sudamericana Emigrati Italiani       -       1       1   
   Total       618       12       630   

Meanwhile, the party composition of the Italian Senate following the March 2018 election was as follows:

   Ticket       Italy
Seats
      Overseas
Seats
      Total
Seats
  
   Forza Italia, Lega, Fratelli d'Italia, UDC       135       2       137   
      Forza Italia       59       2       61   
      Lega       58       0       58   
      Fratelli d'Italia       18       0       18   
      Noi con l'Italia - UDC       0       0       0   
   Movimento 5 Stelle       111       0       111   
   PD, +Europa, SVP-PATT, Civica Popolare, Italia Europa Insieme       58       2       60   
      Partito Democratico       51       2       53   
      SVP - PATT       3       -       3   
      +Europa       1       0       1   
      Italia Europa Insieme       1       -       1   
      Civica Popolare       1       0       1   
      Union Valdôtaine       1       -       1   
   Liberi e Uguali       4       0       4   
   Movimento Associativo Italiani all'Estero       -       1       1   
   Unione Sudamericana Emigrati Italiani       -       1       1   
   Total       308       6       314   

Finally, it should be noted that the Senate currently has six lifetime members, bringing its total membership to 320; a list seat allocated to the Five Star Movement in Sicily remains vacant because the party ran out of candidates in that region.
