ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the political consequences of the Italian mixed electoral system. The new system was introduced in 1993 for the election of the two houses of the parliament. Major stress was on the format of the party system and the dynamics of the electoral competition. It is argued that mixed electoral systems like the Italian one presents a number of puzzling issues and effects. A little help is derived from the debate on laws of electoral systems because the mixing of plurality or majority voting elements with proportional representation yields a complex set of constraints which are difficult for simple generalizations.
