ROME, September 23. /TASS/. The Italian opposition party Lega Nord (North League) has submitted over 82 million amendments to the bill on the constitutional reform, a party member said on Wednesday.
"We have submitted 82,730,460 million amendments to the constitution reform in order to save democracy in our country," said Roberto Calderoli, the Senate’s vice speaker.
The reform initiated by the current government headed by Matteo Renzi proposes abolishing the direct election of senators to simplify the lawmaking process.
Opposition forces, as well as dozens of members of Renzi's own Democratic Party are against the reform, arguing it would undermine Italy's democracy.
