What is the Italian Constitutional Referendum?
Italy is approaching one of the most crucial political times in its history. On the 4th of December, 2016, Italian citizens will vote on a constitutional referendum, where they will approve or disapprove the political amendments proposed by the ruling government. These amendments revolve around the appointment system and political powers of the Parliament of Italy, along with changes in the powers of the regional body entities.
If approved, this bill will trigger one of the biggest political revolutions Italy has seen since World War II. If rejected, the ruling government may have to resign altogether, causing a ripple-effect in the European Union (EU) and probably affecting the value of the Euro (EUR). Regardless of the outcome, the implications of this huge political event must be followed closely.
