Especially the Conservative Party did a lot of propaganda and a massive electoral campaign during November 2011. Especially the Prime Minister Donato De Lellis that made posters and banners to use on the internet and the official forum of the Republic to spur the conservative electorate. The SDP didn't start the electoral campaign before the 20 November 2011 after their leadership election. The first step of the Socialdemocrats for this election was to change symbol of the party. The new leader of the SDP Sante Carbone choose to adpot the symbol used until now with the star. Anyway the SDP decided to form the new shadow cabinet, since this could bring many votes.

The first meeting of the new SocialDemocratic Party with Carbone with a conference was the 17 November, afer a political manifestation.

The time for an electoral campaign in December wasn't much, but the SDP did his massive campaign especially in December 2011, since they had a new leader, a new shadow cabinet and a storng party.
