The Daisy, known also as La Marguerite or Маргаритка, is a centre-left political party in the Vannoisian Empire. The party grew from dissatisfaction with leadership of its immediate predecessor, the left-wing Socialist Party, and particularly of the increasingly "unelectable" party platform as dictated by long-time leaders. It was founded by now-Prime Minister Marlène Astier, taking on her nickname as its name, alongside party secretary Élaine Vaillancourt and now-Interior Minister Joseph Lemaire

While the Daisy is the direct successor to the old Socialist party, it is markedly more pragmatic. While it still aligns towards social democratic, Christian left values, it also undertakes relatively liberal economic policies.

As of 2018 it is in government, led by Prime Minister and namesake Marlène Astier.
