|Headquarters||3, place du Val d'Arly
|Youth wing||Waiting for Freedom in Savoy|
Founded in 1993, the party supports the independence of Savoy from France and the unification of the two departments of Savoy, named Savoie and Haute-Savoie, which have belonged to France since the Treaty of Turin in 1860. Formerly a member of the European Free Alliance, the party is generally pro-European in outlook, while lying on the right of the political spectrum. The League 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 regional elections. The party, however, holds one village, Margencel.
