Election-law bill clears third House confidence vote (2)


Rome, October 12 - A controversial bill for a new
election law passed the third of three confidence votes it was
put to in the Lower House on Thursday.
Article 3 of the so-called Rosatellum 2.0 bill was approved
with 309 votes in favour, 87 against and six abstentions.
After passing the two other confidence tests on Wednesday,
the bill is expected to face a final test in the Lower House
with a secret vote later on Thursday, when it risks being
scuppered if lawmakers belonging to groups backing the bill do
not following the line of their parties.
The anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) and several
left-wing groups are staunchly against the bill and say the use
of confidence votes to push it through parliament is an affront
to democracy.
Italy is set to have a general election early next year.
