The Walloon Front for the Unity and Freedom of Wallonia (French: Front Wallon pour l'Unité et la Liberté de la Wallonie, FW) was a political party in Belgium.

History[edit]

The FW was established by former Belgian Socialist Party member Robert Moreau on 19 January 1964.[1] In the 1965 general elections the party received 0.5% of the vote and won a single seat in the Chamber of Representatives.[2] On 26 June 1965 it merged with the Walloon Workers' Party, the Walloon Democratic Rally and the Wallon Democratic Front to form the Walloon Party, the forerunner to the Walloon Rally.[3]

In 2013 a new Walloon Front party was established to participate in the 2014 elections.[4]
