Ladins Dolomites (Ladin: Ladins Dolomites, LD) is a minor political party representing the Ladin-speaking minority in South Tyrol.[1]


The party, whose original name was Ladins Political Movement (Ladin: Moviment Politich Ladins, MPL), was founded in the early 1990s by Carlo Willeit, who led it in the 1993 provincial election (2.0% of the vote and 1 seat, for Willeit himself) and in 1998 provincial election (3.6%, along with the Democratic Party of South Tyrol, and 1 seat).[2] After that, the party failed to have any elects both in the 2003 and 2008 elections (1.4% and 1.1%, respectively). In 2008, the party took its current name.

In the 2013 provincial election LD ran within a three-party list, along with the Citizens' Union for South Tyrol and We South Tyroleans.[3][4] The coalition won 2.1% of the vote and Andreas Pöder, leader of the Citizens' Union, was its sole elect to the Provincial Council.[5] In Ladin areas the coalition did worse than LD alone in 2008.[6]
