Lega Nord Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Lega Nord Friuli-Venezia Giulia (North League Friuli-Venezia Giulia) is a regionalist Italian political party which is the regional section of Lega Nord in Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

It was founded in 1990 as Lega Nord Friuli and was later merged with Lega Nord Trieste to form a united regional section. Most of its founding members came from the Friuli Movement.

The party, who is led by Pietro Fontanini since 2008 [http://www.regione.fvg.it/rafvg/ansa/dettaglio.act?ansa=20080727.011&dir=/rafvg/cms/RAFVG/ansa/] , is represented in the institutions by two deputies (Fulvio Follegot and Massimiliano Fedriga), one senator (Mario Pittoni) and eight regional deputies. Pietro Fontanini is the President of the Province of Udine, while Eduard Ballaman is the President of the Regional Council.
