politics and government of
Friuli-Venezia Giulia

The Politics of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy, takes place in a framework of a presidential representative democracy, where the President of Regional Government is the head of government, and of a pluriform multi-party system. Executive power is exercised by the Regional Government. Legislative power is vested in both the government and the Regional Council.

Executive branch[edit]

The Regional Government (Giunta Regionale) is presided by the President of the Region (Presidente della Regione), who is elected for a five-year term, and is composed by the President and the Ministers (Assessori), who are currently 10, including a Vice President.[1]

List of Presidents[edit]

Legislative branch[edit]

The Regional Council of Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Consiglio Regionale della Friuli-Venezia Giulia) is composed of 60 members and is elected with proportional representation plus a majority premium for the winning coalition. 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 clause (introduced in 2003), also the Council will be dissolved and there will be a fresh election.
