205 / 307
Established in 1965 by economic liberals critical of the governing Miersan National Party's economic policies which favoured closer ties with Soravia against those of the nascent Euclean Community, the party did not win any seats in the 1966 and 1971 elections, although its popularity grew substantially, and by 1976, they were able to gain six seats in the National Assembly.
During the Miersan War, Naprzód enthusiastically supported the war effort, and became critical of the government's "indifference" to the plight of the Miersan nation: this not only led it to become more aligned with Soravia in the aftermath, but also made it a popular alternative to the governing Miersan National Party, particularly as many people viewed the Miersan National Party as only being able to secure a "glorious defeat" thanks to the help of Episemialist militias. This led to Naprzód taking power in 1986, and would govern continuously until 2011.
In this period, Naprzód instituted economic liberal policies and began to politically liberalize West Miersa as well, culminating in allowing the voiovdeships to exercise their powers under the West Miersan constitution in the early 2000s, and in 2006, by allowing the then-Minister-President, Oskar Palubicki, to exercise his full powers under the constitution.
However, after the 2011 elections, when Naprzód maintained control of the Presidency but lost control of the National Assembly, the situation led to deadlock and tensions between the two parties, culminating in a constitutional crisis that was only solved in June 2013, when Soravia backed the Miersan National Party, allowing them to take control of the Presidency.
In 2016, Naprzód retook control of the Presidency and National Assembly after waging a campaign against the "coup d'etat" and appeals to Miersan nationalism.
Ideologically, Naprzód has advocated for economic neoliberalism. While in the late 1980s and through the 1990s and early 2000s, West Miersa underwent economic reforms and privatized many government-owned enterprises, since the mid-2000s, these efforts have stalled, despite Naprzód's official committment to economic neoliberalism.
Socially, they advocate for social conservatism, and seek to maintain prohibitions on same-sex marriage, and only permit abortions in the event of rape or in case of a medical emergency. They also support tough-on-crime policies. However, unlike the Miersan National Party, they were supportive of some social reforms, such as legalizing homosexuality, and legalizing abortion in the event of rape, or in case of a medical emergency.
