Renzi suggest to wait until electoral law ruling before going to vote

Italian outgoing prime minister Matteo Renzi said on Wednesday that he thinks that it would be more appropriate if the Constitutional Court ruled on the electoral law before calling new elections, reminding that the next government of Italy will have to take on important international appointments like the European Union anniversary and the 2017 G7 summit. In his last E-News before handing in his resignation letter to president Sergio Mattarella, Renzi said: "What is going to happen? Tonight at 19.00 I will formally resign. The President of the Republic will start new consultations and it will be up to parliamentary groups to decide what to do". "Will they insist on voting immediately? In that case, we will have to wait the Constitutional Court's ruling of January 24th and then vote with the current electoral law, as it was modified by the Court", he added. "If parliamentary groups will want to carry on with this legislature, they will have to indicate their willingness to support a new government that will have to tackle issues like the electoral law, but most of all a very important year on an international level: the 60th anniversary of the European Union, the G7 summit in Taormina, the rotating presidency of the United Nations", he then highlighted. "It is going to be interesting to see what the political parties that supported the No-vote think, not only the parties in the majority", he added. "I am not the one who decides, but the parties, all the parties, will have to take their own responsibilities. The point is not what the outgoing premier wants, but what the Parliament proposes", he concluded.
