The Non-Partisan Association is a minor centrist political party in the Democratic Capitalist Republic of Pacitalia. The party was created in October 2005 from a split off the Federation of Progressive Democrats, when ten MPs felt the party would not have the same effect of governance on Pacitalia after Timothy Ell left. They agreed to stay as members of FPD until the January 2006 election, but will be running as NPA candidates for that election. The party is decidedly more centrist and slightly less libertarian than the FPD, but its recent label as a hybrid of Green and FPD is expected to earn it significant portions of vote share.

Interesting facts

The party is headed by current Agustinate of Labour Aria Speranza. The president of the NPA is the eldest son of former prime minister Francesco Santo Ragazzo, Camazo. The NPA will campaign as a force of left-of-centre and right-of-centre candidates solely concerned with "improving Pacitalia".
