Regional elections

Latest regional election

The latest regional election took place on 25 May 2014. It was a snap election, prompted by the dissolution of the Regional Council by the Regional Administrative Tribunal on the grounds that one of the lists supporting the winner Roberto Cota (Lega NordPiemont) in the 2010 regional election had committed irregularities in filing the slates for the election.[1]

Cota chose not to stand again for President and the parties composing his coalition failed to agree on a single candidate,[2] resulting in a landslide victory for Sergio Chiamparino, a Democrat who had been Mayor of Turin from 2001 to 2011.
