A seven-part referendum was held in Italy on 15 June 1997.[1] Voters were asked whether they approved of the repealing of laws on topics including privatisation, conscientious objectors, hunting, the judiciary and journalists, as well as whether the Ministry of Agrarian Politics should be abolished.[2] Although all seven proposals were approved by voters, the voter turnout of 30% was well below the 50% threshold and the results were invalidated.[2]
