PD says no to 'Italicum bis'

Ruling party wants mix of PR, first-past-the-post

(ANSA) - Rome, May 16 - Senior members of the ruling Democratic Party (PD) on Tuesday decided unanimously to say no to the so-called Italicum bis proposal and vote against a white paper on a new electoral law in a parliamentary committee, sources said. The PD will re-present its proposal for an adjusted German-style law, 50% proportional representation (PR) and 50% first-past-the-post with no voter preferences on candidates within a party list and a 5% threshold for seats in parliament.
