Italian Constitution

Formally and according to the Italian Constitution (Costituzione Italiana) is organized in the following way:

  • President of the Republic (Presidente della Repubblica), elected by the Parliament every seven years. The post was held by Sergio Mattarella.
  • The Parliament has a perfect bicameral system, and this are compose of the Chamber of the Deputies and of the Senate of the Republic.
  • The Chamber of the Deputies is elected by the people every five years. There are 630 deputies, twelve of which are elected in the overseas constituencies.
  • The Senate of the Republic is nominated by the President of the Republic. There are 321 senators, six of whom are elected in the overseas constituencies. There are also a number of senators for life, such as former Presidents or citizens appointed by the President, during his term in office, for having brought honor to the nation with their achievements.
  • President of the Council (Presidente del Consiglio), nominated by the President of the Republic. They were responsible for the administration of the Republic. Matteo Renzi is the President of the Council.
  • The Constitution establishes the Government of Italy as composed of the Prime Minister (President of the Council) and Ministers. The President of Italy appoints the Prime Minister and, on his proposal, the Ministers that form its cabinet. The appointee can be the leader of the majority coalition that won the election, or it can be a person instructed by the President to form a national unity government in times of crisis for the nation. Either way, the government must receive the confidence of both Houses, so the Executive derives its legitimacy from the Parliament and the great number of political parties forces the Prime Minister to bend to their will. If the majority coalition no longer supports the government.
  • According to the Constitution, any citizen that is fifty on the day of the election, and enjoys civil and political rights, can be elected President. The President cannot hold office in any other branch of power, and the office's salary and privileges are established by law.
  • In addition to powers inherent in being a member of the cabinet, the prime minister holds specific powers, most notably being able to nominate a list of cabinet ministers to be appointed by the President of the Republic and the countersigning of all legislative instruments having the force of law that are signed by the President of the Republic.
  • Often the Prime Minister's activity consists more in mediating between the various parties in the majority coalition, rather than directing the activity of the Council of Ministers. The Prime Minister's supervisory power is further limited by the lack of any formal authority to fire ministers, although a cabinet reshuffle, or sometimes even an 'individual vote of no confidence' on the part of Parliament, may in practice provide a surrogate measure.
  • The Ministers are 13 :
Ministers of the Government Renzi
Minister of the Foreign Affairs and international cooperation Paolo Gentiloni
Minister of the Interior Angelino Alfano
Minister of the Defense Roberta Pinotti
Minister of the Justice Andrea Orlando
