Civic Freedom

Civic Freedom (Libertà Civica, LC), formerly Citizens for the President (Cittadini per il Presidente, CpP), is a centrist Italian political party active in Friuli-Venezia Giulia since 2003. The party was founded in support of Riccardo Illy's bid to become President of Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

In the 2003 regional election, which saw the election of Illy, CpP won 7.5% of the vote.[1]

In the 2008 regional election CpP won 5.1% of the vote.[2] As Illy was defeated, CpP changed its name to Civic Freedom (LC) in order to reflect its new condition.

In the 2013 regional election LC, renamed Citizens for Debora Serracchiani President, won 5.3% of the vote[3] and was instrumental in Debora Serracchiani's election.
