Rome, June 6 - The Italian parliament is set to
approve the constitutional reform bill passed on Thursday by the
end of October 2014, according to Reform Minister Gaetano
Quagliariello.
The cabinet headed by Premier Enrico Letta on Thursday
launched a bill setting out procedures to reform the Italian
Constitution to streamline government.
Premier Letta has set an 18-month deadline for the reform,
which will be aided by a committee of experts on the
constitution.
"By that time, the committee of experts that have been
appointed today will have finished their work and presented
their report to the government," he said.
The 40-strong committee will address issues such as the
form of the Italian state and government, and will also be able
to re-write the new electoral law.
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.
