The Asturias Forum (FAC) (Spanish: Foro Asturias, Asturian: Foru Asturies), registered as Forum of Citizens (Spanish: Foro de Ciudadanos) is a regionalist political party in the Principality of Asturias.
Asturias Forum was founded in January 2011 by former Deputy Prime Minister Francisco Álvarez Cascos, who left the People's Party (PP) after failing to be selected as the party's candidate for President of Asturias in the 2011 election.
In the Asturian election, Álvarez Cascos led the party under the name "Citizens' Forum" (Spanish: Foro de Ciudadanos). FAC won sixteen seats, making it the largest party on the General Council. Together with the PP, FAC's gains gave the centre-right a majority in Asturias for the first time. The party has spoken to all three other parties to create a more consensual political climate.
On February 12, 2015, Francisco Álvarez-Cascos surprisingly announced he would not stand again as Asturias Forum's candidate and resigned to the presidency of the party. Álvarez-Cascos was succeeded by Cristina Coto, while he went on to become the party's secretary-general.
