Bergamo administrative elections 2024: date, candidates and polls

Bergamo 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.
Giorgio Gori will not be on the field in the Bergamo 2024 local elections: the current mayor of the Democratic Party has in fact almost reached the end of his second consecutive mandate in Palazzo Frizzoni.
The Democratic Party, however, has wasted no time and has already indicated former deputy Elena Carnevali as its candidate for mayor.
Now the Dems will have to work to build the coalition.
The centre-right is also apparently trying to speed things up but, with the possibility of a candidacy for the former director of Italia 1 Luca Tiraboschi gone, an agreement has not yet been found.
While waiting for the polls, here is a guide to the Bergamo 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 Bergamo 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 Bergamo 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).

It remains to be understood now how the centre-left coalition in support of Carnevali will be formed: in the first meeting, in addition to the Pd, Lista Gori, Ambiente Partecipazione Futuro, the PSI, +Europa, Sinistra Italiana, Europa Verde and Oltre were present.
Doors open to Azione and Italia Viva, while an agreement with the 5 Star Movement appears unlikely.
Everything is still up in the air in the centre-right, where the parties seem to be in a hurry after the Democratic Party made its candidate official.
Luca Tiraboschi was initially proposed but this hypothesis was discarded.
According to the inevitable rumours, it would seem that Fratelli d'Italia wants to indicate its own man in Bergamo: the choice of candidate could therefore only come after an agreement between the parties for the "division" of the candidatures in this round of the administrative elections.
Forza Italia meanwhile is thinking of Alessandra Gallone, Gianfranco Ceci or Giorgio Jannone, while among the ranks of the League the hottest name is that of Alberto Ribolla.
