Constitutional Court to review contested election law

Rome, May 17 - The supreme Court of Cassation on
Friday called on the Constitutional Court to review Italy's
contested election law.
In its motion, the Cassation specifically called into
question the systems by which bonus seats are granted in both
the House and Senate.
Italy's current law - passed under a previous government of
Silvio Berlusconi and often referred to as the Porcellum, or
'Pig's dinner' - has also been widely criticised for distancing
politicians from voters, who effectively cannot pick their
representatives, as party leaders have the power to name
candidates on so-called 'blocked lists', which are then voted
on.
It has also been blamed for creating two months of
political deadlock after inconclusive February elections that
ultimately produced the unprecedented left-right government of
Enrico Letta.
The government has pledged to reform it.
