Countdown to the Todde Council in Sardinia: Revealing the First Names


Apr 3, 2024

This week, Alessandra Todde, the new president of the Sardinia Region, will need to finalize the agreement on the future council with the centre-left Campo Largo parties that helped her win the elections on 25 February. The selection of councilors will be guided by criteria such as competence, gender equality representativeness, and territoriality, in accordance with the coalition forces’ recommendations.

The Democratic Party, the leading party in the coalition, is seeking the presidency of the Regional Council, which may be given to Piero Comandini, the Sardinian secretary. The party has also requested the vice-presidency of the council for Giuseppe Meloni, in addition to departments like Budget and Planning, General Affairs, and Environment. The official names for these roles will be proposed to Todde by the Democratic Party in the coming days.

The M5S party, to which Todde belongs, may be responsible for Health and Work in the new council, unless a technician is chosen for the Health department. Desire’ Manca, the outgoing regional councilor who received the most votes in Sardinia on 25 February, is a potential candidate for another department, but nothing is confirmed yet.

Alleanza Verdi Sinistra could be in charge of public works, with the outgoing councilor Antonino Piu potentially leading this department. Orizzonte Comune has requested departments like Tourism, Crafts, and Commerce, which fall under the supervision of the regional coordinator Franco Cuccureddu. Sinistra Futura is aiming for the Department of Culture and Public Education, with Andrea Dettori being mentioned as a possible candidate.

As the process of forming the new regional council continues, various parties and individuals are putting forward their preferences and suggestions for different departments. The final composition of the council will be a result of negotiations and agreements between the coalition partners and the new president, Alessandra Todde.
