The Awami National Party (ANP) is a political party in Pakistan. Its main area of electoral influence is in the Pashtun dominated areas of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan and Sindh provinces of Pakistan. .

Formation and history

In 1986, the National Democratic Party merged with several other progressive political and ethnic nationalist groups to form the Awami National Party. Abdul Wali Khan was elected as its president and Sindhi nationalist Rasul Bakh Palijo was elected its secretary general. The party from 1986-1988 was a member of the Movement for Restoration of Democracy.

The party formed a coalition government with the People's Party in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Islamabad after the 1988 election. This alliance collapsed in April 1989 after differences cropped up between the two parties.

The Awami National Party formed an alliance with the Pakistan Muslim League in early June 1989 which led to a formal split in the party with many activists allying with the PPP.

After the election of Nawaz Sharif to power after the 1990 elections the ANP again formed a coalition with former rivals Pakistan Muslim League. This alliance proved longer lasting, surviving till 1998 when it collapsed over differences over Kalabagh Dam and renaming the province Pakhtunkhwa.ANP quits govt after talks fail (28 February 1998)Raja Zulfikar.
