Italy Parliament Passes Historic Election Reform law

Italy Parliament Passes Historic Election Reform law

The Italian parliament has approved an electoral reform that aims to give the country more political stability.

The electoral reform is expected to come into force next year.

The measure guarantees a majority of seats to the party that wins the most votes in an election.

The law seeks to end Italy's post-war era of revolving governments, political horse-trading and unstable coalitions.

The lower house of parliament gave final approval to the bill by 334 votes to 61.

The proportional election system awards 340 out of 630 seats to any party that wins more than 40% of the national vote.

If no party reaches that threshold, there is a second-round run-off between the two parties with the most votes.
