The referendum will not have a quorum, because this is not a vote in an abrogative. The consultation of the people for confirmation or otherwise of the reform that cut the number of mps from the current 945 total 600 total (200 senators and 400 representatives). As provided for in the Constitution, "the law submitted to referendum is not promulgated if not approved by a majority of the valid votes". Therefore, the validity of the constitutional referendum is not expected to have any minimum quorum of voters. It is sufficient that the consents, exceed the votes unfavorable. If the result of the consultation is positive, the Head of State promulgates the law. Otherwise, it is as if the law had never seen the light, and the outcome of the consultation is published in the Official Journal.
The referendum of march 29, "do not bother me. we are confident that there is a wide array of citizens in favour of this reform". Then it collapses the government? "No, I would say, no, I don't see the connections". He says the premier Giuseppe Conte host of "Eight and a half".
One of the 29 march will be the fourth constitutional referendum confirmatory of the history of the Republic. In the three previous, two times the law passed by Parliament without a two-thirds majority was rejected by the voters, only one has been approved and is now the law of the constitution. According to the terms of article 138 of the Constitution, that the result does not count in the quorum of voters that determines the validity of the referendum abrogative ones. The EARLIER The first is that of the October 7, 2001 when we held the referendum to confirm or no to the reform of Title V of the Charter, approved by a majority of the Union in the years of the government of Prodi, D'alema and Amato: it goes with the 64,2% of the votes even if the voter stops a little over 34%. The second case of a corrective referendum, 25-26 June 2006, regards the constitutional reform, launched by the Berlusconi government (inspired by the League of Bossi and Calderoli minister of Reforms: the so-called 'devolution' is rejected with 61% while the voters reached 52%. The December 4, 2016 is the time of the third constitutional referendum in republican history: the majority of the voters rejected the draft constitutional law of the reform Renzi-Woods, finally approved by the Chamber in April 2016 and which aimed among other things to overcome the perfect bicameralism to the detriment of the Senate. To say no is the 59,11%, against the 40,89% of yes. The voters, however, are records, almost 69%. The first policy consequence of the resignation of the government Renzi. WHAT is THE LAW ON the CUT of the PARLIAMENTARIANS OF The constitutional reform on the cut of the parliamentarians reduces the deputies from 630 to 400, and the senators from 315 to 200. The institute of life senators is kept fixed to 5 the maximum number (so far, 5 was the maximum number that each president could appoint). Reduced even the elect abroad: the members down from 12 to 8, senators 6 to 4. ARTICLE 138 OF the CONSTITUTION, The corrective referendum for the constitutional law is governed by article 138 of the Paper. Need to submit to the citizens the reform voted by the Parliament, but can only be requested if the " yes " of the Chamber and of the Senate shall not exceed two-thirds of the members of the assembly. There are three ways provided for in the Constitution to start the machine for a referendum: to ask the referendum can be 5 thousand voters, 5 regional Councils or a fifth of the members of one of the Chambers (126 deputies and 64 senators). In the case of the law on the cut of the parliamentarians, the signatures are coming from the 71 senators, with the decisive contribution of some of the League that they intended to so encourage the early termination of the legislature. NO QUORUM, unlike the referendum abrogative ones, to the validity of the constitutional referendum is not mandatory to go to vote for more than one-half of the electors entitled: the reform of the constitution, submitted to referendum is not promulgated if not approved by a majority of the valid votes, independent of how many people go to the polling stations.
