The Lombard regional election of 1970 took place on 7 June 1970. It was the first-ever regional election.

Electoral law[edit]

Election was held under proportional representation with provincial constituencies where the largest remainder method with a Droop quota was used. To ensure more proportionality, remained votes and seats were transferred at regional level and calculated at-large.

Results[edit]

Christian Democracy was by far the largest party and Christian Democrat Piero Bassetti formed a government with the support of the Italian Socialist Party, the Italian Democratic Socialist Party and the Italian Republican Party. Bassetti was replaced by Cesare Golfari in 1974.
