It was first created by Rome's city council on 19 January 2001 and has a president who is elected during the mayoral elections. On 11 March 2013 its borders were modified and it has expanded with the incorporation of part of the abolished Municipio XVII.[1] Since then all the rioni of Rome, which are the city's historic districts, form part of Municipio I together with the localities of Delle Vittorie and Eroi.

Municipal GovernmentEdit

The seat of the Municipio I in Via Petroselli.

The President of the municipio is directly elected by citizens. The Council of the municipio is elected every five years, with a system under which voters express a direct choice for the President or an indirect choice voting for the party of the candidate's coalition. If no candidate receives at least 50% of votes, the top two candidates go to a second round after two weeks. This gives a result whereby the winning candidate may be able to claim majority support.

Last election occurred on 5 and 19 June 2016:

Candidate Party Votes % Run-off %
Sabrina Alfonsi PD 26,327 38.69 31,695 50.84
