Sergio Chiamparino

The Piedmontese regional election of 2014 took place on 25 May 2014.

It was a snap election, prompted by the dissolution of the Regional Council by the Regional Administrative Tribunal on the grounds that one of the lists supporting Roberto Cota (Northern League) in the 2010 regional election (which saw Cota narrowly defeating Mercedes Bresso, the incumbent Democratic President) had committed irregularities in filing the slates for the election.[1]

In 2014 Cota chose not to stand again for President and the parties composing his coalition failed to agree on a single candidate,[2] resulting in a landslide victory for Sergio Chiamparino, a Democrat who had been Mayor of Turin from 2001 to 2011.[3]
