The regional government, called Giunta regionale, is the executive body of the Region and consists of the President and the “assessori”, with a maximum of eleven members, one of whom takes office as Vice President.
The President of the regional government is elected by universal and direct suffrage. He or she represents the Region, directs the regional policy and is responsible for it. Moreover he or she appoints and removes the “assessori”, promulgates the regional laws and regulations, presents draft laws and other provisions (taken by the Giunta) to the Regional Council, following adoption by the Giunta. The President of the Giunta also calls regional elections and referenda envisaged by the regional Statute.
The Vice-President replaces the President in case of the President’s absence or impediment.
The Giunta performs its duties collectively, and makes its decisions by a majority of its members and a majority of the votes cast. The President casts the deciding vote in the case of an equal vote. The Giunta implements the government programme, has the right of legislative initiative, implements the resolutions of the Regional Council, exercises regulatory power in compliance with the Statute and the law and implements new laws.
Furthermore the government drafts the annual budget, the general report and its amendments, the long-term budget, the economic-financial planning document and the financial planning tools, all of which are submitted to the Regional Council for approval. Other tasks for the Giunta are to draft the regional EU law; administer goods and property of the Piedmont Region; control the management of regional public services assigned to authorities under the responsibility of the Region.
It deliberates, keeping the Council informed, on controversies on constitutional legitimacy and on conflicts arising from allocation of powers of the State and those powers allocated to State and Regions and between Regions.
It exercises any other activity assigned to it by the Constitution, the national laws, the regional Statute and the regional laws.
