Autonomy Liberty Democracy (Autonomie Liberté Démocratie, ALD) is a centre-left coalition active in Aosta Valley, Italy.[2]


Autonomy Liberty Democracy was originally formed as an electoral list, affiliated to the The Union, for the 2006 general election comprising: the Democrats of the Left, Democracy is Freedom – The Daisy, Valdostan Renewal, Lively Aosta Valley, Forward Valley, the Communist Refoundation Party, the Federation of the Greens and other minor parties. In that occasion, ALD elected a deputy, Roberto Nicco (Democrats of the Left), and a senator, Carlo Perrin (Valdostan Renewal), defeating respectively 43.4% to 30.7% Marco Viérin (SA, VdA)[3] and 44.2% to 32.0% incumbent senator Augusto Rollandin (UV, VdA)[4]

In the 2008 general election Antonio Fosson (UV, VdA) defeated incumbent senator Carlo Perrin 41.4% to 37.4%,[5] while incumbent deputy Roberto Nicco narrowly defeated Ego Perron (UV, VdA) 39.1% to 37.8%.[6] Under a new electoral law, the coalition ran together also in the 2008 regional election. The alliance, comprising three party lists (the Democratic Party, Valdostan Renewal–Lively Aosta Valley and Rainbow Aosta Valley), won 27.4% of the vote and was severely defeated by the Aosta Valley regionalist coalition, which won 62% of the vote and a stable majority in the Regional Council.[7]

In the 2013 general election Patrizia Morelli (ALPE, ALD) was defeated by Albert Lanièce (UV, VdA) 37.0% to 30.8% for the Senate,[8] while Jean Pierre Guichardaz (PD, ALD) came third after Rudi Marguerettaz (SA, VdA) and Laurent Viérin (UVP).[9] In the 2013 regional election the coalition, including also UVP,[10] won 40.5% of the vote.[11]

In July 2015 and June 2016 the regional government, formed by UV and SA, was enlarged to the PD[12] and the UVP,[13] respectively.

Finally, in March 2017 the UVP, ALPE, Edelweiss (SA) and For Our Valley (PNV) formed a new government without the UV, under President Pierluigi Marquis (SA).[14][15][16][17] The future of the ALD looks thus uncertain as the PD has formed a partnership with the UV.
