Solidarity is a left-wing political party in Craitland. Having won seats in every general election, it is seen as one of the major five parties in Craitland, and constituted the minor partner of a coalition government with the Social Democrats in 1544. However, it has yet to gain more than 10% of the electoral popular vote.

Ideology

The party is explicitly socialist, supporting the nationalisation and cooperative ownership of businesses and services, and is a proponent of democracy, with some members staunch republicans. Solidarity has an open foreign policy under the belief that socialistic values must be enacted internationally to operate effectively, and is therefore pacifist. The party also takes a hard line of green politics.

The party's logo is a torch being held aloft by a hand, symbolising its beliefs of enlightenment via socialism and its desire to lead the nation forward. The official colour is dark red, although a variety of reds and oranges is used by the party for its visuals.

Solidarity abroad

Solidarity was previously the only Craitish political party to have had official branches in three former autonomous territories, appearing on ballots in Incontinentia, Lakkvia and New Vaduz. In the former Zandarijn, the party did not stand and instead previously lent its backing to the SSDZ.

Since 1677 AN, Solidarity has been a member of Micras Socialist International.
