No to the draw to choose candidates for the High Council of the Judiciary. And among the electoral systems the majority vote was rejected, with a clear prevalence of votes in favor of the proportional. It is the result of the referendum launched by the National Magistrates Association among its members, who voted yesterday and today for the two questions on a digital platform. For the first question, relating to the draw, out of a total of 7,872 voters, 4,275 voted, with a turnout of 54.31%: the ‘no’ were 2,470 against 1,787 ‘yes’. On the second question, in which he asked whether a majority or proportional-based system was considered preferable for the election of the toga component of the CSM, 4,091 of the total 7872 voters participated in the vote, with a turnout of 51.97%. 3,189 votes in favor of the proportional system, 745 for the majority. “On a personal basis, I can say that on a first reading of the data it is clear that a significant number of magistrates voted against the draw, rejecting the political proposal. The data read together with the high number of magistrates who did not vote, can mean that the draw was not interpreted as the epochal turning point envisaged by the promoters “, comments the president of the ANM, Giuseppe Santalucia. “It should also be noted that the overwhelming majority of those who voted voted for the proportional, which is definitely the electoral system chosen by more than 3 thousand judges out of 4091 voters and is the farthest from the political proposal of the draw”, he emphasizes.
