Election in South Tyrol 1952
The South Tyrolean regional election of 1952 took place on 16 November 1952 as an election to the Regional Council of Trentino-South Tyrol. Formally, the election to the Regional Council took place in two separate constituencies, one corresponding to the territory of the subordinate province of Bolzano, the other to the territory of the subordinate province of Trento. In the constituency of the Province of Bolzano 22 deputies were elected to the Regional Council, in the Province of Trento 26 deputies. With their election to the 48-member Regional Council, the deputies of the Bolzano constituency became at the same time deputies to the South Tyrolean Parliament, while those of the Trento constituency became deputies to the Trentino Parliament
The II legislative period began on 13 December 1952 and ended on 12 December 1956. On 20 December 1952, Parliament elected the South Tyrolean provincial government (Cabinet Erckert II).
In the run-up to the election, the number of mandates in the Landtag was increased from the original 20 mandates in 1948 to 22 mandates. Compared to the first Landtag election, there were only minor shifts in the number of mandates: The two additional mandates went to the South Tyrolean People’s Party (SVP); the Italian Christian Democrats (Democrazia Cristiana) increased their mandate strength from two to three mandates at the expense of the withdrawing list Unione Indipendenti. All other parties were able to retain their mandates from 1948.
