Italy´s high court has permitted a referendum on the planned constitutional reformation. Endangering Prime Minister Renzi´s, who initiated the reform, political future. Italy´s political history is littered with countless political crisis and cabinet reshuffles. The new constitutional reform should have ensured more political stability in future. In case the reform should not be accepted, Mr. Renzi has threatened with resignation. Momentarily, there are many undecided voters in Italy. This a high risk move for Mr. Renzi´s center-left government. If Renzi fails, this could mean a new shockwave for Europe. Investors are selling Italian Equity.
