The Lombard regional election of 1990 took place on 6 May 1990. The 5th term of the Regional Council was chosen.
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.
Christian Democracy, which had been the leading political force in the region for twenty years, and the Italian Communist Party lost half million votes each and Lega Lombarda, a new autonomist party led by Umberto Bossi, obtained a sounding victory, entering the Regional Council with 15 councillors, along with one for the Lombard Alliance, and becoming the second largest party in the region. Since that point Lega Lombarda became a stable political force in Lombardy.
After the election a cabinet led by Christian Democrat Giuseppe Giovenzana was formed but, after the Tangentopoli crisis, it was replaced by a succession of governments which included both Lombard League and the Democratic Party of the Left, the successor party of the Communists.
