Long queues for polling stations Italy

rome - The changing of the electoral system, incorrectly printed or incorrectly delivered ballots and a good turnout have resulted in long queues for polling stations in some places in Italy on Sunday. In Palermo, approximately two hundred polling stations were open hours later than intended, because the ballots were not virtuous and had to be printed and delivered again.

Long queues for polling stations have also arisen in Rome. Mayor Virginia Raggi of Rome has called on voters to vote on time for the offices in time, at least one hour before the closing at 23:00.

Italian media reported that more than 19 percent of voters voted at 12.00. Five years ago that was almost 15 percent. The country elects a new House of Representatives (House of Representatives) of 630 seats and 315 members of the Senate. The new electoral system is avoiding very small parties. Two major coalitions, a center-right and a center-left, a Eurosceptic protest party and a new radical left party are the most promising participants.
