Results

About the election Short description of the context and results of the election.
The Christian Democratic Party of San Marino (PDCS), led by Mr. Giancarlo Venturini, became the largest party, winning 21 seats in the 60-member Great and General Council. The PDCS subsequently formed a coalition with R.E.T.E. Citizens' Movement, We for the Republic (Noi per la Repubblica), and Tomorrow – Motus Liberi to control a total of 44 seats, thereby avoiding a second round of parliamentary elections (see note). The new State Congress (government) took office on 8 January 2020.
 
 The 2019 elections were the fourth consecutive early parliamentary elections in San Marino. On 23 September, the Captains Regent issued a decree announcing the dissolution of the outgoing Great and General Council, calling elections for 8 December, nearly one year earlier than they were constitutionally due. 
 
 Note: 
 The 2019 elections were the first to be held since the June 2019 referendum, which decided that a second round of parliamentary elections is no longer required if a coalition government is formed within 30 days. The previous system applied to the 2016 elections had required a second round if a coalition did not obtain more than half of the valid votes cast or a minimum of 30 seats.
