Italy’s 5-Stars denounce new election bill as undemocratic

5-Star Movement activists stage a protest outside the Italian Parliament after the lower chamber has begun voting on a proposed election law that aims at encouraging coalition-building, especially among smaller parties, in Rome, Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017. Major parties on the left and right are backing the law, which calls for a combination of seats assigned by a majority system based on colleges and proportional voting. But it is bitterly opposed by the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, Italy’s largest opposition party in Parliament. It has denounced the proposed law as undemocratic. (Angelo Carconi/ANSA via AP)
