Provincial elections in Veneto

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This page gathers the results of provincial elections in Veneto since 1995.

The direct election of the Presidents of Province was introduced in 1993 and carried out for the first time in 1995.

Direct elections, of both Presidents and Councils, were suspended in 2012 and replaced by indirect elections in 2014. Under the new system, only mayors and municipal councillors vote for the President and the Council, often forming bipartisan or trans-party alliances.

Contextually, the Province of Venice is under the process of transformation into "Metropolitan City of Venice" and its leadership was thus not renewed in 2014.
