Italian right-wing leader Matteo Salvini denounced the European Union as "destroyers" Tuesday for policies he said robbed citizens of the right to hope, a week after his League party became parliament's second-biggest in a national election.The March 4 vote ended in political gridlock, with Salvini, a tough critic of EU-imposed budget austerity and Italy's migrant inflow, jockeying for power with the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, which emerged as the single largest party.During the election campaign, all of Italy's political parties responded to rising dissatisfaction with the EU by promising to renegotiate treaties, but the League was the only large party to say explicitly it only wanted to remain within the EU if fiscal and immigration rules were re-written.
