The National Labour Party of Craftia (NLP, known as Labour) was a political party in Craftia. It was formed in 1945 as the successor to the Democratic League of Craftia (formed in 1892 as the successor to the historical Liberal Party), and won the first free general election in a record-breaking landslide. The party had five premiers during its existence, forming government three times under George Phillipson (1945–1947), John Maynard (1947), Allen Wilson (1953–1959), Bert Aaron (1968–1969), and Harry Harrison (1969–1974). Its popularity diminished after the mid-1970s and it merged into the Craftia Liberty Party in 1980.
