National Progressive Union[?]
This page contains information about the National Progressive Union.
This party is inactive.
Headquarters: Aylesbury, Lagard
Party Leader: Samantha Price
The National Progressive Union began as a movement among primarily college-aged students in 4690 who mobilized to voice concerns at the conservative ruling government of Hutori. In 4692 these university organizations centralized and chose to begin the process of running MPs in the 4694 election. This effort was overseen by the leader of the movement, former Thomas University Professor Charles McCahey.
As a well-respected Professor in Economics, McCahey saw the unquestioned conservative coalition as deeply damaging to his country, and helped the Progressive Unions form into a national party and expand their support beyond the college campuses.
In the election of 4694, the NPU experienced a monumental surge, taking a plurality of seats in Parliament and effectively splitting power into thirds between themselves, the center-right Royalists, and the far right One Party. A coalition government between the NPU and the Royalists existed for ten years, until the NPU shifted to the left and became the sole opposition party in Parliament.
The National Progressive Union espouses progressive ideas in the party's platform, such as support for environmental protection policies, workers' protections, and expansive civil rights. However, due to the current absence of a center-left party, the NPU has developed a segment of more moderate liberal support, and has effectively become a big-tent party for most Hutori citizens opposed to the two conservative alternatives.

The National Progressive Union currently consists of two caucuses of elected MPs, based centrally around ideology. The Progressive Caucus has the bulk of the party's seats, reflecting the party's base of support, whereas the Liberal Caucus is far smaller and represents center-left MPs who won in less progressive areas and who joined the NPU due to the absence of a more moderate alternative. There are also a number of unaffiliated MPs, who may wish to remain so for a variety of reasons.
