What are Italians voting on?

 

The vote Sunday is on a constitutional referendum presented by Prime Minister Matteo Renzi that aims to slim down the country’s legislature, speed up lawmaking and attack the bureaucratic morass. Specifically, the overhaul would cut the number of senators by roughly two-thirds to 100, while allowing many bills to be approved by the lower house only. Mr. Renzi has argued that the referendum would give some stability to Italy, which has had 63 governments since the end of World War II.

Critics of the overhaul say the cost-cutting would be far less than what the government is claiming and would give too much power to prime ministers, eliminating important checks and balances.

What are the consequences of a yes vote?

Mr. Renzi and his government would remain in power. In any case, Mr. Renzi has vowed to change a law passed in 2015 that would give the winning party a strong majority through the allocation of “bonus seats.” Elections would most likely be held in 2018, when the current Parliament’s term is scheduled to end.

What are the consequences of a no vote?

Mr. Renzi would most likely resign. If he did, President Sergio Mattarella would consult with the political parties and could decide to form a caretaker government, possibly consisting of technocrats, or call early elections.

Mr. Renzi might also choose not to resign, though that appears unlikely, given his statements in recent weeks.

The political instability would probably have broader consequences throughout Europe, where populism is surging. There could also be economic repercussions, though analysts do not agree on the short- or long-term impact of a no vote.
