Gianluca Forcolin

Gianluca Forcolin (San Donà di Piave, 28 August 1968) is a Venetist politician from Veneto, Italy.

A member of Liga VenetaLega Nord since 1993,[1] Forcolin was long involved in municipal politics in his hometwon, Musile di Piave, of which he had been councillor, assessor, deputy mayor and finally mayor from 2007 to 2015.[2] In the 2008 general election he was elected to the Chamber of Deputies, where he sat in the Finance Committee, but did not stand for re-election five years later because he, a Venetist close to Luca Zaia as well as loyal to former Lega Nord leader Umberto Bossi, was not popular with the new leadership led by Flavio Tosi.[3] He was even suspended from the party for ten months by the local leader Daniele Stival.[4][5]

In 2015, after Tosi was sidelined by the federal party, Forcolin made his comeback: he was elected to the Regional Council as the most voted candidate of Liga Veneta in the province of Venice[1][6] and Zaia, who had been re-elected President, appointed him Vice President and minister of Budget and Local Government.[7][8]
