Regional Council of Veneto

The Regional Council of Veneto ("Consiglio Regionale del Veneto") is the regional parliament of Veneto.

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

Composition

The Regional Council of Veneto ("Consiglio Regionale del Veneto") is composed of 60 members, of which 47 are elected in provincial constituencies with proportional representation, 12 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.http://www.consiglio.regione.lombardia.it/c/portal/layout?p_l_id=PRI.1046.1&p_p_id=20&p_p_action=1&p_p_state=exclusive&p_p_col_id=null&p_p_col_pos=2&p_p_col_count=3&_20_struts_action=%2Fdocument_library%2Fget_file&_20_folderId=69&_20_name=l+cost+199_PDF.pdf]

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.

Currently the President of the Council is Marino Finozzi.

Last regional election

The last regional election took place on 3-4 March, 2005. Giancarlo Galan (Forza Italia, House of Freedoms) was re-elected for the third time President of the Region, but the support for him was diminished by the presence of a third candidate, Giorgio Panto, who picked votes both from the centre-right camp and from the Ventist one, and of a fourth candidate of the far-right.

Forza Italia suffered a decline in term of votes and regional deputies, although remaining the largest party in the Council and also in the Region as a whole (the Olive Tree was only an electoral alliance at the time and the three parties which were part of it formed separate groups in the Council), while Venetist parties had a very good result: the combined score of Liga Veneta (14.7%), North-East Project (5.4%) and Liga Fronte Veneto (1.2%) was 21.3%, up from the 15.6% of 2000 (Liga Veneta 12.0%, Veneti d'Europa 2.4% and Fronte Marco Polo 1.2%.
