Electoral law poser
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
