This R&D covers the result of Italy’s constitutional referendum.  A sizable majority of Italian voters, 59% in total, voted against Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s package of constitutional reforms to weaken the Italian Senate and assist in more robust lawmaking powers by Italy’s central government.  Renzi announced that he would resign as an outcome of the referendum, potentially plunging Italy into renewed political chaos and weakening the Italian government’s efforts to stabilize the nation’s economy.
