The regional elections of 16 April 2000 had a wide national impact:

they brought about the fall of the D’Alema Government and the formation

of the Amato Government. These elections represented a

political, rather than an electoral, defeat for the Center-Left. Even

though their outcome, in fact, could be interpreted as a mark of

electoral stability, it flew in the face of D’Alema’s belief that the

government’s action would translate into more support for the

Center-Left at the regional level.
