The approval of the law n. 270/2005 for the elections of the members of Italian Parliament gets to some opinions on the link between citizens and candidates before elections, and between voters and elected after elections: an issue faced by members of Parliament participating to the discussion on before its approval. The new law moves from single-member contituencies on the first-past-the-post electoral system (for 75% of the seats), towards a proportional system with the attribution of a majority prize. The assignment of the parliamentary seats is carried out among the competing lists linked among them, in a proportional way. The voters can choose their vote for a list without any preference, so that the political parties name the candidates in blocked lists: the voters cannot change the order of the list. This system was strongly disputed during the parliamentary debate. A remedy to the cleavage between voters and elected seems to come from the adoption of the primaries. Tuscany ‘s regional Council has approved the primaries by regional law n. 70/2004 in order to involve voters un the process of list-making, in order to build a constructive relationship between voters and candidates.
