The New Nationalist Party (Zhenian: 신국민당/新國民黨, pronounced Shingukmindang), also referred to as its former name, the Nationalist Party (Zhenian: 국민당/國民黨, Gukmindang), is a political party in Zhenia. It is one of the largest contemporary political parties in Zhenia alongside the Union of Neo-Renism, and as of 1610 AC is the second-largest party in the nation by number of seats in both the Sangseowon and the National Assembly.

The New Nationalist Party has its roots on the Nationalist Party and other conservative parties present in Zhenia since the December Revolution. It was established shortly after the Coup of 1549 by Kim Shimin, who seized the opportunity amid the regimentation of conservative politicians.

History

As the Nationalist Party

The Nationalist Party has its roots in the Coup of 1549, in which not only the Second Republic was overthrown by former Great War veterans but also the Armed Police Forces. The Coup has resulted in the regimentation of conservative politicians and activists loyal to the systems of the First Republic, now that the Second Republic no longer existed. Seizing the opportunity to increase his hold on the nation's political affairs, Kim Shimin called on former military leaders, activists and other influential figures in the nation to form a single political party. Thus, on February 17, 1549, just days after the coup, the Nationalist Party was established as the united political body of Kim Shimin and the prime movers of the coup. Upon its establishment, it had maintained close ties with the National Reconstruction Council, with over 70% of the council's members being eventually affiliated with the party.

After the November Revolution

The status of the Nationalist Party was under attack after the November Revolution and the subsequent demise of the Third Republic, as it consisted primarily of high-ranking members of the Third Republic's government as well as those involved in the upbringing and administration of the Republic.
