عوامی نیشنل پارٹی | The Awami National Party (ANP) is a political party in Pakistan.





عوامی نیشنل پارٹی پاکستان کی ایک سیاسی جماعت ہے۔ اس جماعت کا زیادہ اثر و رسوخ صوبہ خیبر پختونخوا اور بلوچستان کے پشتون علاقوں میں ہے۔ اس کے علاوہ یہ جماعت صوبہ سندھ اور پنجاب میں بھی چھوٹے پیمانے پر اپنا اثر رکھتی ہے۔ یہ جماعت ماضی میں قائم کی گئی نیشنل عوامی پارٹی کی تبدیل شدہ شکل ہے، جو کہ برصغیر کی مشہور خدائی خدمتگار تحریک جو برطانوی دور حکومت میں چلائی گئی تھی سے اخذ شدہ ہے۔







The Awami National Party (Pashto: ملي عوامي ګوند‎, Urdu: عوامی نيشنل پارٹی‎; Acronym: ANP), is a political party in Pakistan, representing about 13 seats in the Parliament in the latest national parliamentary elections held in 2008. The party was founded by Abdul Wali Khan in 1986 and its current president is Asfandyar Wali Khan, grandson of Bacha Khan, with Tajuddin Khan serving as the Secretary-General.


Part of the PPP-led cabinet of Pakistani government, the ANP's political position is considered left wing, advocating for secularism, democratic socialism, public sector government, and economic egalitarianism.


ANP is the largest Pashtun party in Pakistan. Although its popular vote center or influence lies in the Pashtun dominated areas in and around Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, it has also gained considerable amount of momentum in the Balochistan and Sindh provinces of Pakistan. The ANP party enjoys friendly ties with neighboring Afghanistan and India, including the United States.
