 Reform in Italy
The other 25% would be allocated by the party list form of proportional representation, with the votes of those candidates already elected in the single-member districts excluded from the party totals, which would provide a mechanism for the list seats to compensate for distortions in the single-member district seats.
Parties also are now required to alternate male and female candidates on their lists, although the effect of this will be limited since at most one quarter of the seats will be filled from the party lists.
All of this was in addition to the elimination of public financing of political parties by a companion referendum in April.

 EIAL IV2 - European Political Parties and the Southern Cone   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Political parties constituted an essential building block in the construction and institutionalization of the relationship, and were in the vanguard of Europe's interest in events in Latin America.
Instead, Spanish parties have relied on élite diplomacy; that is, visits to Latin America by high-ranking party members or the reception of Latin American leaders in Spain -or, in the case of the PSOE, claiming for the party the successes of Spanish governmental activity.
European political parties, especially on the left, have also indirectly contributed to the rethinking of strategy and tactics which took place in the 1980s within Latin American socialist parties in particular, which in turn led to a shift towards social democratic ideologies on the left, and a greater possibility of consensus among the opposition.

In elections the "Radicali" either have presented their own lists under different names ("Lista Emma Bonino" or "Lista Pannella" after the two most prominent figures of the party) or have (at least) locally joined other parties for a common list (especially the PSI and PSDI or radical-left parties as the "Democrazia Proletaria").

 Election Resources on the Internet: Elections to the Italian Parliament
The PCI was not the only "anti-system" party, as there were several minor political movements to its left, and most importantly, a major neo-fascist party on the far right, the Italian Social Movement-National Right (MSI-DN), which had absorbed the Monarchists in 1972.
When Italy adopted its new electoral system in 1993, there were high hopes - both within the country and beyond its frontiers - that the new parliamentary election procedures would lead to a simplified political system, which would in turn produce stable, effective, long-lasting governments.
Although the electoral system has led to the rise of two broad electoral cartels on the right and the left, which have alternated in power, the party system remains highly fragmented; at the same time, the electoral alliances have proved to be rather fragile, compromising governmental stability in the process.

 Political Parties and Party Systems
Reading List/Course Outline
The tension seems to lie between party systems that are everywhere in flux and parties which remain as the mainstays of representative linkages in liberal democracies.
In this first week we examine the way in which parties have been integral to theories of liberal democracy and we question whether their status in theory has been justified by their status in practice, and we ask whether modern bureaucratic politics have rendered the political party a redundant form of political mobilisation.
Party Systems II In this second session addressing the theoretical literature, we move onto examine Sartori's categorisation of party systems.
