The Wendish People's Party (German: Wendische Volkspartei, Upper Sorbian: Serbska ludowa strona) was a political party of the Sorbs in Weimar Germany.


The party was originally known as the Lusatian People's Party (Lausitzer Volkspartei). It ran in the 1920 federal elections, but received just 0.03% of the vote and failed to win a seat.[1] By the May 1924 elections the party had changed its name to the Wendish People's Party. It ran as part of the National Minorities Alliance, but again failed to win a seat, receiving just 0.04% of the national vote.[2]

The December 1924 elections saw the party's vote share halve to 0.02%,[3] whilst in the 1928 elections it again saw a fall in popular support, receiving just 3,111 votes.[4] The party did not contest any further elections.

A new party under the same name was founded in 2005, changing its name to the Lusatian Alliance in 2010.
