Abstract:

The main aim of this paper is to describe the background of proposing, enacting and implementing a new electoral system in Italy, prepared by Berlusconi’s proponents to make his re-election into office easier. The article deals also with the possible classification of the system, where authors argue against describing it as a “proportional system with majority premium” and recommend instead the term “mixed conditional”.
