Vibo Valentia 2024 administrative elections: date, candidates and polls

Vibo Valentia 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.
In the 2024 local elections, barring any surprises, Maria Limardo, the current centre-right mayor, will still be in the field and will most likely be supported again by the entire coalition.
Possible split in the center-left in Vibo Valentia: the Democratic Party could focus on Enzo Romeo, but the choice would not be shared by the 5 Star Movement with Action also appearing to be destined to go its own way.
While waiting for the polls, here is a guide to the Vibo Valentia 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 Vibo Valentia 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 Vibo Valentia 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).

In the 2019 local elections, Maria Limardo – an independent from the area – achieved a clear victory in the first round with almost 60% of the votes.
In the 2024 local elections, Limardo has already declared that she is ready to run for a second consecutive mandate, with Forza Italia giving its de facto consent, paving the way for the mayor to run again.
If the center-right should present itself united in the Vibo Valentia 2024 local elections, the same can hardly be said for the center-left which could include as many as three different candidates.
The Democratic Party seems to have wanted to play in advance by indicating the former president of the Province Enzo Romeo as a candidate, but this could lead to isolation for the Dems.
In fact, at this point the 5 Star Movement could go on its own, so much so that the Five Star Movement has been in dialogue with various civic realities for some time.
However, a possible agreement cannot yet be ruled out.
In the middle of the ford there is Action and all the other moderate forces indicated as the third pole: the Calendians will certainly be in the game, it remains to be understood now whether alone or in coalition.
