- Walloon Rally
The Walloon Rally ( _fr. Rassemblement wallon) (RW) was a Belgian political party, active in
Walloniafrom 1968 to 1985. The party favoured federalism.
7 March 1968, the party contested the Belgian general election of 1968 in a cartel with the FDF, a Brussels-based francophonepolitical party, receiving 5.9 % of the vote nationally. The party's own results in elections to the Belgian Federal Parliamentwere as follows.
The increasing federalisation of Belgium, and the adoption of some of the party's policies by the traditional francophone parties, resulted in a sharp decline in electoral support from 1977 onwards. A split in the early 1980s created the
Walloon Popular Rally, a more left-wing grouping, which later merged with the Socialist Party. The Wallonia-France Rally, which supports the union of Wallonia and France, was formed by the rump of the party's membership.
