Regional and local elections were held in Sabia and Verona on 8 July 2018. The governors of the central regions, Alios and Gonn, as well as the prefects (mayors) of Gonn's three prefectures (Kotavari, Monesari and Sato) were elected. The election date was set by the Electoral Commission of Sabia and Verona a week after the passing of the Law on Fixed Terms for Regional and Local Authorities, which regulated the duration of mandates for governors and prefects in the central regions.[1]

The last elections for governor in the central regions were held in October 2016; elections were scheduled for 2017 but the governors of both Alios and Gonn ran unopposed and elections were not held. Elections in the prefectures were last held on 14 May 2017, concurrently with parliamentary elections. The 2018 regional and local elections were the first sub-national elections not held alongside parliamentary elections since 2015.[2]

Elections in the autonomous regions were last held in 2015, and are due to be held again in 2020.

Regional elections

Alios

On 28 June 2018, the governor of Alios, Étienne Boulin (independent, formerly of the DSN) announced he would be running for a fourth term. The same day, Brigadier Mirna Baudelaire of the National Guard announced her intention to run for the Liberals. Deputy Leader of the Liberals, Simor de Jena MP, later confirmed the party's support for Baudelaire.

Elections were to be held in 2017, but Boulin ran unopposed and was sworn in for a third term on 14 September 2017. Boulin had been governor of Alios since the city's foundation; he was first elected as governor of the Alios-Capital region in August 2015. In November 2015, when the region was split into the autonomous city of Alios and the region of Gonn, Boulin remained as executive administrator of the city, and was re-elected for a second term in 2016.[3][4]

On 8 July 2018, Boulin was returned for a fourth term, making him one of the longest-serving public servants in the Kingdom.[5]
