Northern Italian region Veneto intends to hold a referendum on regional autonomy, reports Il Gazzettino.




It’s governor Luca Dzayya said in an interview with Il Gazzettino newspaper, commenting on the results of the Sunday referendum on constitutional reforms, including reducing the powers of the regional governments.


“The highest turnout during the referendum was registered in Veneto. This became a prelude to a referendum on our autonomy”, said Dzayya. “I should note that if the constitutional reform would be supported, our referendum would loose it’s sense”.
