Italians vote to slash number of parliamentarians

ROME,  In a national referendum held alongside the local elections, Italians voted strongly in favor of cutting the number of lawmakers in the upper and lower houses of parliament to 600 from 945, Reuters reported.
Some 70% of voters backed the measure — a clear victory for the co-ruling 5-Star Movement, which has championed the reform, arguing that it would reduce costs and improve parliamentary efficiency.
In the regional ballot, the right easily kept control of the northern regions of Veneto and Liguria, while the PD retained Campania in the south.
