Bersani blasts PD election-law proposal

Former leader who quit party calls on Prodi to revise position

(see related) (ANSA) - Rome, May 18 - Pier Luigi Bersani on Thursday blasted a proposal for a new election law presented by his former group, the centre-left Democratic Party.
    "It does not guarantee governability and it damages representation," said Bersani, a former PD leader who was among a group of left-wingers to leave the group and form a splinter party, the MDP, earlier this year.
    "We have the umpteenth last-minute mess".
    Bersani also called on former premier and ex-European Commission President Romano Prodi and former Milan mayor Giuliano Pisapia to revise their positions over the proposal now that it was in black and white.
