The Community Action Party originated from the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan when Construction Industry Expert Peter Franzen formed the party from a group of community activists in 2002 which at its height produced 18 councillors in Wigan and brief electoral success in Salford.
The party has regrouped and recently held its annual general meeting when Michael Moulding from the city of Salford was elected its Deputy Leader.
Michael Moulding stood in the recent Mayoral elections to help the party grow and get established in Salford and came second in the 2012 local elections in Swinton North.
The party has set itself aims and objectives as the Community Action Party is a registered political party with The Electoral Commission. We are therefore a UK wide political party with the intention of seeking support where ever its exists.
The Community Action Party is a peaceful political party and we oppose oppression. The party is against wars in Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan and is opposed to the oppression of Palestine.
