The Confederal Party for Progress (initialism CPP, also known as the Confederal Progress Party) is a party alliance of the Mancunian Royal Party, the Independent Usian Leftists' Party, and the Nollandish Free Liberals. The Labor Party of Nedland was a founding party, but became inactive after the collapse of Nedland. It is the only opposition party to the Freedom Party in the Parliament of the Nollandish Confederacy, and was created solely for that purpose. The party is built around social democratic/socialist principles.

Name

During the formation of the party, "Confederal Liberal" and "Confederal Labor" were suggested by James I. Shortly after, "Confederal Party of Progress" was proposed, and the preposition was altered. Only a few days later, the nickname "Wreath and Arrow" (for the symbolism of its logo) and the initialism "W&A" came into common use, said to have been coined by Gabriel N. Pelger.

Background

The formation of the coalition was in response to the formation of the Confederal Freedom Party during the Nollandish Confederacy election, 2015.
