Rejected reform for Italian provinces explained by court

Rome, July 19 - The Italian Constitutional Court on Friday issued its explanation for rejecting a sweeping reform to eliminate provincial governments, introduced under a technical government led by ex-premier Mario Monti. "The contested provisions have a significant impact on the powers of the provinces (that are mentioned in the Italian constitution) the court said. "A comprehensive reform of the system of local governments is likely to have repercussions on a whole set of entities that are territorially recognized and guaranteed by the Constitution". Italy's current right-left coalition government led by Premier Enrico Letta has passed a decree to reinstate the reform in an effort to cut waste and streamline public spending.
