The Tuscan regional election of 1985 took place on 12 May 1985.

Electoral law

Election was held under proportional representation with provincial constituencies where the largest remainder method with a Droop quota was used. To ensure more proportionality, remained votes and seats were transferred at regional level and calculated at-large.


The Italian Communist Party was by far the largest party. After the election Gianfranco Bertolini, the incumbent Communist President of the Region, formed a new government with the support of the Italian Socialist Party and the Italian Democratic Socialist Party.[1]
