With the voting booths not yet open for business, here is what the new Chamber of Deputies will look like. On 13 and 14 April, we won’t be able to vote for any candidate. They have come to some sort of agreement and, thanks to an entirely unconstitutional law, they will be electing themselves. This cock-up of a law is basically everyone’s doing: from the centre-right that proposed the law, to the centre-left that failed to repealed it during their two years in Government, through to the State President who went ahead and called an election before holding a referendum on the new electoral law.
All that Joe Citizen can do now is make the sign of the cross. This is not democracy. It is not even a distant imitation of democracy. It is simply a case of the Country being occupied by an across-the-board group. A group that has elected itself and that is about to send to Parliament a bunch of lovers, wives, sentenced criminals, statute barred offenders, people under investigation and others remanded for trial.
Check through the list and then compare it with the election results. If the majority of the names coincide, it will mean that they have succeeded in taking you for a ride. A non-vote is the only useful vote.

Seats will be allocated by party in accordance with the following layout:

- Sinistra Arcobaleno 43
- PD 180
- Italia dei Valori 20
- SVP 3
- UDC 32
- PDL 293
- Lega Nord 41
- MPA 6

The 12 deputies elected abroad by means of the direct preferential vote have not been counted.

Ps: In the upcoming blog postings, I will be posting the names of the Senators and all of the Parliamentary candidates with some or other case pending within the justice system: there are 100 (ONE HUNDRED!) such cases, a nice round number.

Ciau Beppe,

why don't you ask for genuine (direct) democracy in Italy?
similar to Switzerland, but of course the Italian way?

Being so popular like you und not asking for genuine (direct) democracy is a waste of political energy. Tell everyone the truth, tell the people about genuine democracy and how it works. Ask for a referendum to introduce genuine democracy in Italy and be an even greater pain-in-the-ass of all politicians.

best democratic regards

Tibet is a fad.
It is the "magic flute".
And you´re all following it.

It will lead you down the cliff.

It's trough, but at this point between the two I'll give a chance to Veltroni. Maybe ,he troughly want to change.

E' vero, ma a questo punto, tra i due do una chance a Veltroni. Forse a voglia di fare davvero.

Please hear it.

To Tibet Supporters,

Ironically, the Beijing Olympic Torch will be starting
from the Buddhist Temple, Zenko-ji, in Nagano, Japan.
In consideration of the current situation of Tibet,
the Buddhist temple should not participate in the Torch Relay.
We, the Tibet supporters in Japan, would very appreciate you
if you raise your voice in protesting their participation.
The more protests you do, the more possibilities we stop.
Please send a post card to Zenko-ji:
Temple: Zenko-Ji
Address: 491 Motozenmachi, Nagano 380-0851, Japan

Constitutional... unconstitutional...

It really makes no difference at this point!

It´s like arguing how to select the new captain when the ship is already sinking!

Italy is going bust, bankrupt, completely broke. It´s the same that happened in Argentina. Only, for Italy, it will be much worse and it will last much longer--decades.

When you´re gonna lose everything anyway, what difference does it make if the PM is Prodi, Veltroni, Berlusconi or Mickey Mouse?

So, you don´t need to worry about the elections! Cheer up!!! You´re going broke anyhow, so elections don´t matter!

Yes, these elections are unconstitutional, unpopular, vitiated and awful, but they could also be the last elections in a long time......Look at Tar-Head's fascist salute with stretched right arm and wonder.
