Berlusconi's party against minimum quotas for women MPs
FI says has doubts about Constitutionality10 March, 12:13
The bill is the result of a deal that Renzi, the leader of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), struck with Berlusconi before he became premier last month.
"Forza Italia is against minimum quotas for women MPs because it would be a law with evident problems of Constitutionality," said FI's Francesco Paolo Sisto, who was one of the lawmakers proposing the election-system bill. As a result, the House suspended work on the bill until 14.30, despite the opposition of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), the Northern League and the left-wing SEL party.
