Electoral reform law clears key hurdle in Italian lower house

Rome (dpa) - Italy‘s lower house on Thursday approved an electoral reform bill, despite fierce opposition from the country‘s populist, anti-establishment Five Star Movement.

Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni had tied the vote to a confidence motion in order to move the bill more quickly through the Chamber of Deputies. The legislation still needs to be approved by the Senate.

The Five Star Movement has objected to the law because it promotes coalitions, to which the party fundamentally objects.

Italy must hold elections by early next year and the government has hurried to pass the legislation before then, as the current electoral system is different for the lower and upper houses, increasing chances of inconclusive results.

The new legislation, known as the "Rosatellum" law, is backed by the ruling Democratic Party (PD) as well as the right-wing populist party Lega Nord and the conservative Forza Italia party.
