Italians Vote No To Constitutional Changes, Now What?

Italians voted against changes to its constitution over the weekend, a vote that had turned into a referendum on Prime Minister Matteo Renzi himself.

Some believed the changes would have made it easier to pass legislation in Italy but others feared would give too much power to the executive branch.

Renzi has already announced his resignation, but it's unclear what else is next for Italy.
