Minority within Renzi's own party against election bill

(ANSA) - Rome, April 20 - Ten rebel members of Premier Matteo Renzi's centre-left Democratic Party (PD) said Monday that they are set to be removed from the Lower House's Constitutional Affairs committee after announcing they would not vote for the government's 'Italicum' bill introducing a new election system. "We said that we do not intend to vote for the individual articles of the report of the rapporteur (of the bill)," said Andrea Giorgis, one of the PD rebels on the committee. "We were told that we will be replaced (by the party)".
