  New Democratic Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The New Democratic Party (NDP; Nouveau Parti Démocratique in French) is a political party in Canada with a social democratic philosophy that contests elections at both the federal and provincial levels.
The party was bitterly disappointed to see its two Saskatchewan incumbents defeated by the Conservatives, both in close races, perhaps due to the unpopularity of the NDP provincial government.
However the party does not allow her to be part of the parliamentary caucus, as the NDP favours the abolition of the Canadian Senate.

The NDP is noted for its populist, agrarian and democratic socialist roots, its close affiliation with organized labour, and, while the party is secular and pluralistic, it has a longstanding relationship with the Christian left and the Social Gospel movement, particularly the United Church of Canada.
Since then, the federal NDP is not integrated with a provincial party in that province; instead, it has a section, the Nouveau Parti démocratique-Section Québec, whose activities in the province are limited to the federal level, whereas on the provincial level its members are individually free to support or adhere to any party.

In the general election of 1990, the party was elected to government for the first time by defeating the Liberal government.
This split has not yet fully healed, and contributed to the party's defeat in the 1995 election at the hands of Mike Harris and the Progressive Conservatives.
Under the rules of the legislature, a party would receive "official party status", and the resources and privileges accorded to officially-recognized parties, if it had 12 or more seats; thus, the NDP would lose caucus funding and the ability to ask questions in the House.

 News Copy, New York: Democratic Party
New York State Democrats had this play in their bag of tricks and were only waiting for the right time to pull it out.
The New York Post reported this weekend that high level Democrats throughout the state have begun what should be a rather amusing "shaking down" of the Nassau County Executive, who our sources report can't be bought or intimidated out of next year's Democratic primary.
News Copy first reported on Langone's mission in early October and noted his support of Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi, the "new" Democrat and darling of Conservative Party leaders.
