Following a ruling by the Constitutional Court of Italy that the country’s much criticised electoral law was ‘unconstitutional’, Italian political parties are now in the process of agreeing a new law to cover Italian elections. The latest proposal was passed in Italy’s Chamber of Deputies on 12 March and will now pass to the Senate. Matteo Garavoglia outlines the new law and its likely impact on future elections. He notes that while it is an improvement on the previous arrangement, there are still important deficiencies that fall short of European democratic standards.
