Citizens of Italy vote to reduce the parliament functioning

The country of Italy now wants to reduce the size of the ruling government. Italy has voted to cut the size of the country's parliament by more than a third, exit polls hint. More than 67% of people voted in support of the change, as per a projection from state broadcaster RAI. The number of diplomats in the lower house will be reduced from 634 to 400. The council will also be reduced. The plebiscite was driven by the Five Star Movement that was a part of the governing coalition, which debated that the move would decrease prices.

The move, which decreases the total number of MPs and representatives from 945 to 600, had already been accelerated through parliament. But it is required to get support from a referendum because it changes the constitution. The settings will have to be made before the 2023 election. Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio, a senior Five Star figure, called the result as "historic". He stated, "We can go back to having a normal parliament, with fewer privileges and 345 fewer seats." Last October, Five Star said 'streamlining parliament will save the country €1bn (£918m) over 10 years.'

However, detractors contend that the move will undermine democracy. The referendum was carried alongside a small number of regional elections. Right-wing opposition leader Matteo Salvini said he was aiming for a clean sweep however his party appeared to make one gain - the eastern region of Marche. It stayed in charge of two other regions. The center-left Democratic Party held on to three regions it already rules including Tuscany.
