Chamber:
  Consiglio grande e generale


Dates of elections / renewal (from/to):

  10 June 2001


Purpose of elections:

  Elections were held for all the seats in Parliament following premature dissolution of this body. Elections had previously taken place in May 1998.


Background and outcome of elections:

  For the first time in the history of San Marino, legislative elections were held before they had been due. Although Parliament as a whole was due for re-election in 2003, the crisis which broke out in February 2001 within the government coalition, made up of the Christian Democrat Party (PDCS) and the Socialist Party (PSS), made it necessary to move the date up to 10 June 2001.

Voter turnout was some 74 per cent, a bit less than in the 1998 elections.

The PDCS took 25 seats, the same number as in the outgoing Parliament. The PSS won 15 seats, one more than before, while the Democrats' Party (PD) stayed even with 12 seats. The Democratic People's Alliance (APDS) lost one seat, leaving it with five. The three remaining seats went to the Communist Renewal (RCS) and the National Alliance (ANS).

On 12 July 2001, the Great and General Council elected a new coalition government composed of the PDCS and the PSS.
