ROME (Reuters) - Lawmakers from Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement on Wednesday called for immediate elections after the Constitutional Court ruled that the current voting system was invalid.
“The court has told us what we have to do to give the country an electoral law that at least respects the constitution, now we must respect the court and hold elections,” prominent 5-Star Senator Nicola Morra wrote on Facebook.
His words were echoed by several other parliamentarians from what is Italy’s main opposition party.
