The road map of the formalities to be carried out in view of the political elections scheduled for 25 September continues. The deposit of the symbols ended on August 14 at the Viminale. In the first evaluation, the Ministry of the Interior admitted 70 of the 101 registered marks. There are 14 who did not pass the screening while 17 have 48 hours to submit additions as they “do not allow the submission of lists”. Among those who did not pass the ministerial scrutiny also the list of the former prosecutor Palamara (Palamara beyond the system), Italians with Draghi Rinascimento, Up with de Magistris and the first deposited symbol of the Italian Liberal Party. Stop also to the Libertas political movement; Retired Party at the Center; Christian Democracy; Thought and Action – Ppa, Popolo VAT numbers; Italy awakens itself, the League for Italy, the Italian Federalist Party. Among the not admitted also ‘South calls North’ of the former M5s, Dino Giarrusso who then withdrew the symbol. The next formal step is represented by the presentation of the lists: on 21 and 22 August at the chancelleries of the Courts of Appeal (from 8 to 20 both days), on the 35th and 34th day before the vote. The next, therefore, are the last days to complete the collection of signatures. The “quantum” of subscriptions is linked to the number of plurinominal constituencies defined in the electoral law and decreased after the cuts in the number of parliamentarians. Before 2020, both a party and a coalition needed “at least 1500 and no more than 2000” subscriptions by voters registered in the electoral lists of municipalities included in the same for the 63 multi-member constituencies in the Chamber. plurinominal college or, in the case of plurinominal college included in a single municipality, registered in the electoral sections of that plurinominal college “.
After the referendum vote, the plurinominal constituencies for the Chamber fell to 49 and those for the Senate to 26. In order to be presented throughout the national territory, therefore, approximately 73,500 signatures would be needed. However, the law says that “in the event of the dissolution of the Chamber of Deputies which brings its deadline forward by more than one hundred and twenty days, the number of subscriptions is reduced by half”, therefore 750 signatures for each multi-member college. It is therefore necessary to collect a total of 56,250 signatures (36,750 for the Chamber and 19,500 for the Senate); but since those who sign for the Chamber do so also for the Senate, the threshold is 36,750 people who sign the lists. Subscriptions that must be authenticated by public officials or notaries and lawyers. In the Elections decree, passed by the Government on 5 May, exemptions are provided: Article 6 bis of the provision establishes that lists can be presented without collecting signatures “political parties or groups constituted as a parliamentary group in at least one of the two Chambers to 31 December 2021 “, therefore Pd, Lega, Fratelli d’Italia, Forza Italia, M5s, Liberi e Uguali, Italia Viva and Coraggio Italia. On 25 September, election day, the polling stations will be open from 7 to 23. Then by 15 October the first session of the new Parliament will have to be held. This is established by Article 61 of the Constitution, according to which “the first meeting” of the Chambers “takes place no later than the twentieth day after the elections”
