List of political parties in Veneto

Several Political parties operate in Veneto, and historically they have been even more than today. No party has the chance of gaining power alone (even if Liga VenetaLega Nord runs the provincial government alone in Treviso) and thus parties must work with each other to form coalition governments.

The party system of Veneto is a three-party system. Liga Veneta, which is by far the largest party, dominates regional politics along with its junior partner, The People of Freedom, that is the second-largest party in the region. The last regional election, held in March 2010, saw the participation of other two major coalitions: one centred around the Democratic Party and one formed by the Union of the Centre and North-East Project.


Major parties

More than 20% in the 2010 regional election (or at least 10 regional councillors):

Medium parties
