Savoyan League ( French: , Ligue savoisienne Arpitan: ) is a French Liga de la Savouè regionalist political party based in Savoy. [1 ]
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.
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.
