Originally Lega Nord (“Northern League”), now Lega per Salvini (“League for Salvini”), was founded on December 4, 1989 by the merger of several regional autonomist movements from northern Italy, with the main political aim of making Italy a federal state. After a first experience with the national government that lasted a few months in 1994, in the 2000s the Lega joined the center-right coalition which gained political leadership in the elections. At the government, Lega contributed to the approval of a restrictive reform of the law regarding immigration and asylum and, in the years in which it expressed the Minister of the Interior, obtained a drastic reduction in illegal immigration thanks to a careful policy of bilateral agreements with the countries of origin of the immigrants, and with rejections at the border.

Alternative für Deutschland
Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) was found in 2013.The leitmotif is “Courage to stand up for Germany“. Members have come together as citizens with different background, experience, qualifications and political careers. In spite of our differences, we believe in a common vision, and that the time to stand up and act has arrived. We share a firm conviction that citizens have the right to true political alternatives, not only those presented by the political class. No longer can we remain idle and observe the breaches to justice and the rule of law, the destruction of the constitutional state, and irresponsible political actions, which clash with sound economic principles.
For the ID Group, national identities should be embraced, respected and preserved. That’s why it opposes uncontrolled mass immigration and the possible EU accession of a non-European country like Turkey.
Each European nation should have the right to determine its own policies, according to its own needs. The EU should stop interfering in the internal affairs of its Member States.
