2019 Sammarinese general election

← 2016 8 December 2019

All 60 seats in the Grand and General Council
31 seats needed for a majority

Electoral systemEdit

The 60 members of the Grand and General Council are elected by proportional representation, with seats allocated using the d'Hondt method. The electoral threshold is calculated by multiplying the number of parties running in the elections by 0.4, with a maximum possible threshold of 3.5%.[2]

If no party receives a majority, or the two largest parties are unable to form a coalition government within thirty days of the elections, a runoff election will be held between the two most popular coalitions, with the winner receiving a seat bonus to give them a majority.[3][4] It is the first time the facultative second round will be applied following its approval in a June 2019 referendum.[4]

CampaignEdit

Two electoral alliances were formed for the elections:[5]
