Ligue savoisienne (French) Liga de la Savouè (Arpitan)
|Headquarters||3, place du Val d'Arly
|Youth wing||Waiting for freedom in Savoy|
The party supports the independence of Savoy from France. The two departments of Savoy, named Savoie and Haute-Savoie have belonged to France since the Treaty of Turin in 1860. Savoy was previously a sovereign state. It co-operates with the Savoy Region Movement, which does not support independence but rather federalism and Savoyard autonomism.
In the 1998 regional elections, the League won 5.39% in Savoy (4.42% in Savoie and 6.05% in Haute-Savoie) and therefore won a seat in the Rhône-Alpes Regional Council. It did not participate in the 2004 elections. The party, however, holds one village, Margencel.
