South African Nationalist Party


The National Party (Afrikaans: Nasionale Party) is a former political party in South Africa. Founded in 1914, it was the governing party of the country from 4 June 1948 until 9 May 1994. Members of the National Party were sometimes known as Nationalists or Nats. Its policies included apartheid, the establishment of a republic, and the promotion of Afrikaner culture. After 1994 the party was involved in conservative politics, but was renamed the New National Party, which then merged with the African National Congress in 2005.
