The Olive Tree

Lombardy renewed its delegation to the Italian Senate on April 21, 1996. This election was a part of national Italian general election of 1996 even if, according to the Italian Constitution, every senatorial challenge in each Region is a single and independent race.

The election was won by the centre-left coalition called The Olive Tree.

Electoral system[edit]

The intricate electoral system introduced in 1993, called Mattarella Law, provided 75% of the seats in the Senate as elected by first-past-the-post system, whereas the remaining 25% was assigned by a special proportional method that actually assigned the remaining seats to minority parties.
