National Association of Perak
Founded: 4 October 1953
Dissolved: 1959
Formed by Perak's first Menteri Besar Abdul Wahab Muda Abdul Aziz or Panglima Bukit Gantang, who headed PML and served as UMNO Perak chief before his expulsion from UMNO for secretly inviting UMNO and MCA members to join his new party. It co-operated with Onn Ja'afar's Independence of Malaya Party and later Negara. After Abdul Wahab passed away in 1959, the party moved closer to Alliance. Dual membership of NAP and UMNO or MCA soon became accepted. Later, it was renamed Perak National Democratic Association before being phased out.
