Voting in Italian referendum for amending the Constitution started. It was reported by Reuters.

Polls opened at p a.m. Kyiv local time.

A question about approval of the bill to amend the Constitution of Italy was submitted on the referendum. As a result of the possible amendments, the political system of the country will be radically changed: the order of formation of the Senate, its number will be reduced, as well as its functions and powers, financing will also be reduced.

The powers of the regions will also be reduced: energy issues, strategic infrastructure and civil defense will be managed directly by the President.

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has repeatedly promised to resign if the Italians rejected his proposals.

According to preliminary surveys, which were carried out during the last two weeks, as well as data betting organizations, a more likely option is vote against the proposed changes in a referendum. Although the votes are roughly equal in general.
