Voting intentions for referendum on parliament members in Italy 2020

A constitutional referendum on the number of parliament members will be held in Italy on September 20 and 21, 2020. According to a survey conducted at the beginning of September 2020, 51 percent of respondents declared that they intend to vote in favor to cut the number of parliament members.

The Italian Parliament consists of the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate of the Republic. Currently, the number of deputies amounts to 630, while senators are 315. In case the referendum will approve the cut, the reform will reduce the number of deputies to 400 and senators to 200. In absolute numbers, Italy has one of the highest number of parliament members in Europe. However, in proportion to the population, this figure is low. Data on the number of deputies in the European Union and in the United Kingdom show that Italy currently has one of the lowest parliament member rates among all countries. After the referendum, Italy could potentially have just 0.7 members in the Chamber of Deputies per 100,000 population, ranking last in the EU.
