Avellino 2024 administrative elections: date, candidates and polls

Avellino 2024 administrative elections: the engines are warming up in view of the municipal elections which, barring surprises, should be merged as regards the first round of the European elections as already happened five years ago for a sort of election day.
After the victory in the 2019 local elections, the current mayor of Avellino Gianluca Festa will be back in the field looking for a second mandate.
According to what we learn, the mayor is in dialogue with the center-right for a programmatic agreement, but the coalition could also go on its own.
The mayor will certainly find himself against the Democratic Party which is trying to set up a coalition that could also include the 5 Star Movement, while on the left there should be the Popular Union for Avellino.
While waiting for the polls, here is a guide to the Avellino 2024 administrative elections with the probable date of the vote, the possible mayoral candidates and the dictates of the electoral law with which the citizens will elect their next mayor.

On the same day the polls opened throughout Italy for the European elections and in Piedmont also for the regional elections.
Even if an official communication from the government has not yet arrived, everything would suggest a merger in 2024 too: in this case the first round of the local elections in Avellino would be held on Sunday 9 June.
As per the regulations, the possible run-off would be held two weeks later but it remains to be seen whether the government will maintain the double voting day – polls also open on Mondays until 3pm – as done recently.
The electoral law The electoral law of administrative elections in Italy is majority-based as regards the election of the mayor, while the distribution of councilors takes place in a proportional manner.
Since Avellino is a municipality with more than 15,000 inhabitants, if no candidate in the first round obtains an absolute majority then a run-off will be held between the two most voted.
If there is a perfect head-to-head tie, the oldest candidate will be elected mayor.
To guarantee the formation of a solid majority and consequently substantial governability, the lists linked to the winning mayoral candidate will be allocated 60% of the seats; the remaining seats on the Council will then be assigned to the other lists in a proportional manner through the "D'Hondt method".
At the division of seats, a total of 32 councilors excluding the mayor will be elected.
All lists and groups of lists of candidates that have exceeded the threshold of 3% of valid votes will be admitted.
As regards the voting methods, in municipalities with more than 15,000 inhabitants, split voting is permitted, with the voter being able to express up to two preferences while maintaining gender equality (one man and one woman).

Five years later – barring any surprises – Gianluca Festa will still be in the field seeking a second consecutive mandate: four civic lists are ready to support him.
Also at the window would be the centre-right – divided and disappointing in 2019 – which would be trying to reach a programmatic agreement with the mayor.
If an agreement does not arrive, the coalition could focus on the journalist Rino Genovese.
For the local elections, however, the Democratic Party would be thinking of a civic profile like that of the doctor Carlo Iannace; on the left, instead, the Popular Union for Avellino is also supported by Rifondazione Comunista and DemA.
