Labour and Freedom List
In a press conference on 3 October Tremonti explained that the party might also be called Forward Together (Avanti Insieme). The words "forward" and "together" are, respectively, a tribute to the social-democratic tradition (Avanti! was the newspaper of the Italian Socialist Party, PSI) and to the Catholic one, that are the two wings upon which the new party was founded. Tremonti, who was four times minister of Economy and Finance (1994–1995, 2001–2004, 2005–2006, 2008–2012) under Silvio Berlusconi and vice president of Forza Italia (2005–2009), was thus leaving The People of Freedom, of which he had been a founding member in 2009.
On 5 December Tremonti, on behalf of 3L, signed a political pact with Roberto Maroni, leader of Lega Nord (LN). This led to an electoral pact, under which Tremonti and his followers were included in Lega Nord's lists. Tremonti is a candidate for the Senate in Lombardy and heads the list in most Southern regions.
