The Andalusian Party (Spanish: Partido Andalucista, PA) is an Andalusian nationalist-regionalist centre-left political party from Andalusia (Spain), with an important presence in provinces such as Cádiz and Seville although in the past they have stood in other provinces and even won seats in Barcelona to the Catalan Regional Assembly.
The party was founded as the Socialist Alliance of Andalusia (Alianza Socialista de Andalucía) in 1971. In 1976 it took the name Socialist Party of Andalusia (Partido Socialista de Andalucía). In 1979 the name was changed to Socialist Party of Andalusia - Andalusian Party (PSA-Partido Andaluz). The current party name was adopted in 1984. Its current Secretary-General is Antonio Jesús Ruiz.
Historically, the party has been strong in the capital city of Andalusia, Seville, as well as other big cities like Jerez de la Frontera or Algeciras, obtaining the cities' mayorship in several times in all three cities.
The Andalusian Party considers itself a progressist party, as well as an andalusian nationalist party, having among his goals the self-determination of Andalusia and the recognition of Andalusia as a nation within the Europe of the Peoples.
