Peace and Neutrality Party

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Peace and Neutrality Party (Lao: ສັນຕິພາບເປັນກາງ, romanizedSantiphab Pen Kang) was a political party in Laos.


The party was established by Quinim Pholsena in 1956 after he was expelled from the National Progressive Party.[1] In the supplementary elections in 1958 it won four seats after campaigning alongside the Lao Patriotic Front.[1]

The electoral law was amended prior to the 1960 elections, introducing a requirement for candidates to have a degree. This disqualified most of the party's leadership and it failed to win a seat.[1]
