Lega Nord Romagna (English: Romagna Northern League, LNR) is a regionalist political party in Italy active in the Romagna.

The LNR is one of the two "national" (regional) sections of Lega Nord in Emilia-Romagna, the other being Lega Nord Emilia (LNE), and proposes the separation of Romagna from Emilia and, thus, the establishment of the Region of Romagna.[1] For now it has campaigned with some success for the "return" of Romagnol municipalities of northern Marche to Romagna.[2]

Recent history[edit]

Gianluca Pini, who served as national secretary from 1999 to 2015, has represented the party in Parliament since 2006.

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

In the 2014 regional election the joint list of LNE and LNR obtained its best result ever in a regionwide election (19.4%).[5]

In October 2015 Jacopo Morrone was elected secretary to succeed to Pini,[6][7] who was later installed as president.

Popular support[edit]

Lega Nord is usually less strong in Romagna than Emilia. However, in the 2014 regional election the party scored quite good results in the three Romagnol provinces: 20.1% in Ravenna, 20.0% in Forlì-Cesena and 17.9% in Rimini.

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