Elections to the Parliament of Andalusia were held in Andalusia in Spain on 3 March 1996, concurrently with the nationwide general election celebrated on the same day. The elections were for all 109 seats of the Andalusian Parliament, determining the President of the Andalusia autonomous community.

The PSOE won the election with a greater relative majority than before, enabling it to require the support of only the Andalusian Party in order for Socialist candidate Manuel Chaves González to be invested as President of Andalusia, ending the period of instability that had dominated the previous legislature.
