The Abeldane National Independence Party (abbreviated and often referred to as ANIP) is a centrist political party in the Abeldane Empire. The party is the largest in the Reichsversammlung with 6 out of 17 seats. It is also currently in a coalition government lead by Abeldane Social Ecology, holding 2 cabinet positions. The party came into being on the 3 September 2017 with the merger of the Abeldane National Party and the Independence Party of Abelden in the wake of the 2017 August elections. The party headquarters are in Volkania, capital of the Kingdom of Demirelia, and is currently lead by Patrick Renwick, former Vorsitzender and leader of the ANP.

History

Talks between the ANP and IPA about a possible merger started in October 2017 during the Fourth Renwick Cabinet lead by the ANP. These talks would evolve into more concrete negotiations following the 2017 August elections and the resignation of Henry Twain as leader of the IPA and Brandon Wu taking over as interim leader. During the negotiations it was decided Patrick Renwick would be the leader of the new party. The ANP and IPA officially merged on 3 September.

Symbols

Logo of the National Party, the main base for the ANIP logo

The party logo of the National Independence Party is the National Independence shield and torch, a design closely mirroring the former ANP Torch with the significant addition of a purple torch in the centre, symbolising the former IPA. The design was agreed upon during the negotiations.

The party motto is "Long Live Liberty! Long Live the Empire". This mirrors the party's nationalistic views and it's support for liberty and freedom.
