Lega Nord Romagna (North League Romagna) is a regionalist political party in Italy active in the Romagna. It is one of the two "national" (hence, regional) sections of Lega Nord in Emilia-Romagna, the other being Lega Nord Emilia.

The party proposes the separation of Romagna from Emilia and, thus, the establishment of the Region of Romagna.[1] For now it had campaigned with some success for the "return" of Romagnol municipalities of northern Marche to Romagna.[2]

Since 1999 Gianluca Pini, deputy since 2006, has served as the party's national secretary.

In May 2012 Pini was re-elected with the support of 91% of party delegates of the national congress.[3][4]

Popular support[edit]

Lega Nord is less strong in Romagna than in Emilia. In the 2010 regional election Lega Nord Romagna had its best result ever, gaining well above 10% of the vote in the three provinces of Romagna: 13.4% in Forlì-Cesena, 12.4% in Ravenna and 10.5% in Rimini.

The combined electoral results of Lega Nord Emilia and Lega Nord Romagna in Emilia-Romagna are shown in the table below.
