Italy parliament votes to slash number of lawmakers

Rome: Italy’s parliament on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved slashing the number of lawmakers, a move the left-leaning government hopes will help keep the far-right from power. The move, linked to broader electoral law reforms, was passed by 553 MPs, with just 14 voting against and two abstentions.
“It’s done!” the M5S said on its blog. “Promise kept.” (AFP)
