Association of Northern Deputies

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Association of Northern Deputies was a political party in Laos.


Originally known as the Vientiane Group,[1] the party won nine seats in the 1965 elections, and also did well in the 1967 elections, after which it was renamed the Association of Northern Deputies.[1] MPs from other regions of the country joined it and the party formed an alliance with the Lao Neutralist Party, supporting Prime Minister Souvanna Phouma's government.[1]
