The Lombard regional election of 1985 took place on 12 May 1985. The 4th term of the Regional Council was chosen.

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, despite a slight decline in term of votes. After the election Christian Democrat Giuseppe Guzzetti was re-elected President of the Region at the head of a coalition comprising also the Italian Socialist Party, the Italian Democratic Socialist Party and the Italian Republican Party. In 1986 Guzzetti was replaced by Bruno Tabacci, to whom Giuseppe Giovenzana succeeded in 1989.
