Senate reform a 'priority' in 2014 says Letta
Plans to strip upper chamber of equal status with House23 December, 13:08
All current plans for changes to Italy's reviled recent electoral law, which has been ruled unconstitutional, include turning the Senate into a regional body.
The plans also envisage letting voters pick their MPs rather than voting so-called 'blocked lists'.
Blocked lists and a big bonus for the House winner were the two parts of the law ruled unconstitutional, leaving Italy with almost pure proportional representation if no reform is achieved before the next election, expected in early 2015.
