The National Coalition Party of New Westphalia (DE: Nationale Sammlungspartei, FR: Parti de coalition nationale, ES: Partido de Coalición Nacional, FN: Kansallinen Kokoomus) (commonly referred to as the National Coalition Party or simply NCP) is the second largest (in terms of assembly seats) and youngest political party in the Republic of New Westphalia. Founded in September of 2013 as the Liberal Party, it is currently the only Centre political party in New Westphalia. It was founded by after being made head of the Liberal Party. Before the general election the Liberal Party was rebranded as the National Coalition Party in order to appeal to more voters, it worked, with the NCP gaining a seat from the Nationalists in their conservative heartland of Trystanburg, to go on to form the next government of the republic.

The NCP have aimed to bring political parties of the spectrum closer together and to put an end to the political squabbling that is rife in politics. Currently the National Coalition Party hold three out of nine seats in the New Westphalian Assembly and they are hoping to push for four at the next general election.

Policies

The National Coalition Party is a party that believes in Social Liberalism. They believe in equality for all citizens of New Westphalia and are also hold a belief in Civic Nationalism. The National Coalition party feel that the contrasting left and right-winged views of the National party and Labour party can be mitigated through the NCP. The Party supports environmentalism this can be viewed within their manifesto. Same-sex marriage is a key issue the party strongly supports. They support the Scottish government and UK government's legalisation of equal marriage and hope to have it legal within the state of Colorado (which Trystanberg is located) in the near future.

In the current NCP Election Manifesto, several pledges are made for the upcoming 2014 General Election which are aimed around constitutional law such as; The passing of the Equality Act, which would set to establish the rights of citizens in law, and an environmental bill.


Taxation

The National Coalition Party understands that New Westphalia is currently too small to successfully tax our citizens. However, the NCP proposes allowing individuals to make contributions to New Westphalia, either by donation for a specific cause or purpose or to the government in general. We do also recognise that most of our citizens already donate a great deal of their resources to New Westphalia at present, so we are against pushing for donations.

Local Government

The National Coalition Party supports the notion of devolving powers to the regions of New Westphalia. However, we understand that, at present, the republic is too small to push devolution through. Although, we believe the devolution of powers to local authorities to allow for the introduction of new citizens to their constituency would be beneficial to the young nation.
