The Progressive Party of North Syria (Arabic: الحزب التقدمي شمال سوريا, French: Parti Progressiste de Syrie du Nord, Turkish: Kuzey Suriye İlerici Partisi) is a political party in the Kingdom of North Syria. The party espouses socially liberal values, economic equality and sits on the left of the poltiical spectrum.
The party was found by Princess Razia bint Fahad, the daughter of King Fahad of North Syria, as a reactionary movement to the many policies passed by Prime Minister Muhsin el-Hussein. They announced in May of 2015 that they would be participating in the 2016 federal elections of North Syria.
History and Background
The Progressive Party was found by a joining of coalition of left-wing groups, and others opposed to the government under Prime Minister Muhsin el-Hussein and the Free Democratic Party, who was evidently promoting a right-wing government. Of these groups that joined to form the modern-day Progressive Party included the Peace for Levant Movement, Amal Movement and the North Syrian Womens for Change. These groups were spearheaded by the King's daughter, Princess Razia.
