Politics of Manchuria
The United People's Party (Chinese: ㄌㄧㄢㄏㄜ ㄖㄣㄇㄧㄣ ㄉㄤ, Liánhé Rénmín Dǎng; Korean: 미국 사람들의 당, Migug Salamdeul-ui Dang) is a Korean political party in Manchuria. It constitutes part of the opposition in the Supreme National Assembly. It holds 20 seats in the Supreme National Assembly, being the smallest seated party. Until 2015 it was known as the Korean People's Party.
The party was preceded by the Korean People's Socialist Party, a party within the governing Democratic Front for Socialism within the Manchu People's Republic which was in reality dominated by the Communist Party. In 1989 the KPSP formally abandoned socialism and became a centrist party focussed on Korean interests. It was a supporter of the Popular Front for Democracy and Revolution governing within it until 1995, and was formally affiliated with the Minzhudang. It is now affiliated with the New Progressive Party.
The party's main support comes from Koreans in Manchuria, especially in the province of Yanbian with its main policies being focussed around bettering the lives of Korean communities in Manchuria. This has expanded in recent years with the UPP being one of the primary voices of liberalism in Manchuria. Unlike other seated party's and coalitions in Manchuria the UPP does not run candidates in premierial elections, instead supporting the NPP's one.
- Support open and liberal markets.
