Freedom Party of South Tyrol

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Freedom Party of South Tyrol (FPS) was a short-lived South Tyrolean party that was active in the 1980s .


The FPS emerged in 1987 from the right-wing conservative party of the independents , which was represented by Gerold Meraner in the South Tyrolean state parliament and thus at the same time in the regional council of Trentino-South Tyrol . In the state elections in 1988 , the party managed to win a mandate for Meraner. In 1989 the FPS was part of the Union for South Tyrol .

The Freedom Party , founded in 1992 , did not emerge directly from the FPS, but Meraner later referred to it as the successor to his first Freedom Party in terms of content .
