Legislative branch[edit]

The Regional Council of Lazio (Consiglio Regionale del Lazio) is composed of 51 members, of which 39 are elected in provincial constituencies with proportional representation, 10 from the so-called "regional list" of the elected President and the last one is for the candidate for President who comes second, who usually becomes the leader of the opposition in the Council.

The Council is elected for a five-year term, but, if the President suffers a vote of no confidence, resigns or dies, under the simul stabunt vel simul cadent prevision (introduced in 1999), also the Council will be dissolved and there will be a fresh election.[2]
