Past election laws wouldn't have produced majority either


Bologna, March 8 - If Sunday's general election
failed to produce a majority in parliament it is not solely the
fault of the 'Rosatellum' election law, according to an analysis
by Bologna's Istituto Cattaneo.
Given the voting patterns on Sunday, it would also have been
highly difficult to have a parliamentary majority with the
so-called Porcellum law used for the 2006, 2008 and 2013
elections, with a grand coalition the only way to break the
gridlock, the experts said.
The same is true of the never-used Consultellum system which
came into force after parts of the Porcellum were declared
illegitimate by the Constitutional Court.
The only recent system that would have created a majority is
another never-used law, the Italicum.
This was only meant to apply to the Lower House as the Senate
was meant to be transformed into an assembly of regional
representatives under a Constitutional reform which, however,
was rejected in a referendum in December 2016.
Under that system the centre-right coalition and the
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement would face off in a run-off
to see who got a package of bonus seats to ensure a working
majority in parliament.
