Prime Minister Matteo Renzi's constitutional reform will increase bureaucracy and plunge Italy into institutional chaos, the main opposition party warned Monday as it stepped up its campaign ahead of a referendum on the proposals.Di Maio said the Senate, which will no longer be directly elected and whose members will be cut to 100 from 315, will keep full legislative powers on issues related to the European Union and other key areas, and will be able to hold up many laws.Renzi says the current system, by which laws must be passed in the same form by both houses, is slow and cumbersome, but Di Maio said Italy already had far more laws that its EU peers and speeding up lawmaking was "a false problem".
