Cesena 2024 administrative elections: date, candidates and polls

Cesena 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.
Enzo Lattuca, the current Democratic Party mayor of Cesena who will try to obtain a second mandate, should be back in the field in the 2024 local elections.
Everything is yet to be decided in the centre-right where, in all likelihood, the candidate will be the Brothers of Italy with the most talked about name which is that of Marco Casali.
Barring any surprises, the 5 Star Movement will run on its own, just like the Cesena civic leaders.
While waiting for the polls, here is a guide to the Cesena 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 administrative elections in Cesena 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 Cesena 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).

After his experience in Parliament in 2019, Enzo Lattuca was chosen as the mayoral candidate of the centre-left coalition, subsequently winning with 55% in the run-off; five years later the mayor, barring any surprises, should be back on the field.
It remains to be understood now what Italia Viva will do given that the mayor does not seem to have closed the door to a possible expansion of the coalition, while in all likelihood the 5 Star Movement will go its own way.
Strengthened by the good result obtained in the 2022 political elections, in the center-right this time it should be the turn of the Brothers of Italy to indicate the name of the coalition's mayoral candidate, with the former municipal councilor Marco Casali who would be in pole position.
The Cambiamo civic movement, capable of taking 8.4% in the 2019 elections, would however like to choose the centre-right candidate in a more shared manner, with the match within the coalition which consequently still remains to be decided.
Still remaining within the civic sphere, Cesena Siamo Noi should also be in the field in the 2024 local elections, the list that five years ago managed to get 9% in the first round running alone.
