The Piedmontese regional election of 1995 took place on 23 April 1995.

For the first time the President of the Region was directly elected by the people, although the election was not yet binding and the President-elect could have been replaced during the term.

Enzo Ghigo (Forza Italia) was surprisingly elected President of the Region, defeating Giuseppe Pichetto (independent of The Olive Tree) and Domenico Comino (Lega Nord Piemont).

Forza Italia, founded the year before by Silvio Berlusconi, formed a joint list with the United Christian Democrats and became the largest party in the region with 26.7% of the vote, while the Democrats of the Left came second with 21.7%.
