Constitutional reform bill launched

Rome, June 6 - The cabinet on Thursday launched a
bill setting out procedures to reform the Italian Constitution
to streamline government.
Premier Enrico Letta has set an 18-month deadline for the
reform, which will be aided by 35 'wise men'.
Reforms include a new electoral law, cutting the number of
MPs and stripping the Senate of its equal status to the lower
house.
Law-making is slower in Italy than other countries because
the Senate has the same powers as the House.
The current electoral law has been widely criticised because
it does not let voters pick their MPs and tends to produce
different majorities in the two houses, as happened in
February's general election which led to two months of deadlock.
