French regional elections, 1992

French regional elections, 1992

Regional elections were held in France on March 22, 1992. At stake were the presidencies of each of France's 26 "régions", which, though they don't have legislative autonomy, manage sizeable budgets. The parliamentary right, led by the conservative Rally for the Republic and the centre-right Union for French Democracy won a landslide, winning 20 of 22 metropolitian regional presidencies. The Socialists only won the Limousin, while the Greens obtained the presidency of the Nord-Pas de Calais region.

The election was held using a one round proportional system (with a 5% threshold).
