Elec­toral law poser

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

ROME: Italy’s high­est court yes­ter­day be­gan de­lib­er­a­tions to rule on the le­gal­ity of the coun­try’s lat­est elec­toral law with the de­ci­sion likely to in­flu­ence the tim­ing of the next elec­tion.

An un­am­bigu­ous rul­ing of­fer­ing a sim­ple so­lu­tion to Italy’s elec­toral tan­gle could open the way for an early bal­lot by June.

A more nu­anced, con­vo­luted read­ing would al­most cer­tainly leave par­lia­ment in place un­til the leg­is­la­ture ends in early 2018.

The con­sti­tu­tional court was ex­pected to an­nounce its ver­dict later yes­ter­day or to­day. – Reuters
