    Political change in the election in the Autonomous Province of Trentino

    Victory of the Lega in Trentino:

    In the run-up of the 2018 provincial elections in the Italian region of Trentino, after 20 years of rule by centre-left autonomist coalitions, the Northern League party (Italian: Lega Nord) won with 27.4% of the votes followed by the centre-left opposition Democratic Party (PD) with 13.93% and the regionalist PATT with 12.59%. The anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), the League’s ruling partner in Rome, reached 7.23%.

    This contrasted with the last such vote in 2013 when the PD was the winning party with 22%, followed by PATT with 17.55%, the League at just over 6% and the M5S below 6%.
    Leading members of the League include Attilio Fontana (President of Lombardy), Luca Zaia (President of Veneto), Massimiliano Fedriga (President of Friuli-Venezia Giulia), Maurizio Fugatti (President of Trentino) and Roberto Calderoli.
