If I'm not mistaken, the Five Star Movement (M5S) won 227 seats in lower house in the 2018 election. But they only have 100 now. I see that 53 deputies split to De Maio's new party/group (Together for the Future, IpF) this year. But still that leaves 74 more of the original M5S deputies unaccounted for. So what happened to those since the 2018 election?

The parliament

If you want a visual chart of changes, look at the work made by Vittorio Nicoletta showing the Parliament group changes for the Camera (lower house) and the Senato (high house) with data from Openpolis.

According to the data from Openpolis Camera and Senato, there have been a total of 259 changes of party by 203 MPs inside this XVIII legislature (2018-2022).

M5S - 5 Stars Movement

The M5S lost those MPs in favor of other groups:

Group Camera Senato Tot
Misto 52 15 67
Lega 2 3 5
FdI 4 1 5
IV 5 1 6
PD 4 1 5
FI 4 2 6
LeU 1 0 1
IPF 53 11 64
CAL-PC-Idv 0 12 12
TOT 125 46 171

The summary for M5S is:

Camera Senato Tot
Initial MPs 227 112 339
Lost MPs 125 46 171
Today's MPs 96 62 158

n.b.: I did not count those MPs who changed groups and then returned back to M5S.

Misto group: in the Italian Parliament, all MPs must be inside a group. The creation of a new group has strict and different rules for each house. The Misto (mixed) group collects two types of MPs:

  1. those that do not subscribe to any existing group (e.g.: independent MPs)
  2. those whose party does not have the requirements for the creation of a new group.
