    Italian politics back on the agenda: what are the risks?

    Having seen off the risk of a snap election at the beginning of the summer, Italy's political class was able to take a break before getting back to work with preparations for the forthcoming general election. The current parliamentary term is due to expire on 15 March 2018, but the chambers are likely to be dissolved as soon as the final Budget Act has been passed, no later than mid-January. Elections will then be able to take place between 45 and 70 days after the dissolution of parliament, thus opening up a window between March and June. The date is therefore more or less known.

  • Extract:

    Furthermore, agreement has finally been reached on the new electoral law. But will this new electoral system – the fourth in twenty-four years – be able to deliver a stable majority? Nothing could be less certain. However, we believe the outcome of the election will probably be either a very broad coalition supporting a technical or minority government, or a broad coalition between the traditional left and right. And we think this new electoral system will, after all, significantly reduce the likelihood of M5S gaining power.
