The Regional Council of Emilia-Romagna (Consiglio Regionale dell'Emilia-Romagna) is the regional parliament of Emilia-Romagna.

It was first elected in 1970, when the ordinary Regions were instituted, on the basis of the Constitution of Italy of 1948.


The Regional Council of Emilia-Romagna (Consiglio Regionale dell'Emilia-Romagna) is composed of 50 members, of which 39 are elected in provincial constituencies with proportional representation, 11 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. If a coalition wins more than 55% of the vote, only 6 candidates from the "regional list" will be elected and the number of those elected in provincial constituencies will be 53.[1]

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.[1] Currently the President of the Council is Matteo Ricchetti
