Emilia-Romagna regional election, 2005

The Emilia-Romagna regional election of 2005 took place on 3–4 April 2005.


The incumbent President Vasco Errani, a member of the social democratic Democrats of the Left, was re-elected defeating by a landslide Carlo Monaco, the candidate of the centre-right coalition led by Forza Italia.

Electoral Law

The Legislative Assembly of Emilia-Romagna (Assemblea Legislativa dell'Emilia-Romagna) is composed of 50 members. 40 councillors are elected in provincial constituencies by proportional representation using the largest remainder method with a Droop quota and open lists, while 10 councillors (elected in bloc) come from a "regional list", including the President-elect. One seat is reserved for the candidate who comes second. If a coalition wins more than 50% of the total seats in the Council with PR, only 5 candidates from the regional list will be chosen and the number of those elected in provincial constituencies will be 45. If the winning coalition receives less than 40% of votes special seats are added to the Council to ensure a large majority for the President's coalition.
