Friuli-Venezia Giulia regional election, 1978

This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Friuli-Venezia Giulia

The Friuli-Venezia Giulia regional election of 1978 took place on 25 June 1978.

Christian Democracy was by far the largest party, largely ahead of the Italian Communist Party which came second. The regionalist parties, Friuli Movement, Slovene Union and the recently formed List for Trieste (which stole many votes from the mainstream social-democratic parties), had a total score of more than 10% for the first time.

After the election Antonio Comelli, the incumbent Christian Democratic President, formed a one-party government. In 1980 he managed to enlarge his cabinet to the Italian Socialist Party, the Italian Democratic Socialist Party, the Italian Republican Party and the Italian Liberal Party.[1]
