The Populist Party is a minor political party in the United Kingdom registered in 2001. It had first appeared in the London Borough of Greenwich Council elections of 1998, where the founder, Russell White, stood in Eltham Park ward and achieved 60 votes. In 2014 it was merged with the Populist Alliance, known until 2013 as the Popular Alliance, which was formed in March 2006[3] by former members of other small political parties, particularly Veritas.[4]

The renamed Populist Alliance (led by Russell White, original Populist Party leader) [5] merged with the Populist Party, and Mr White became the Populist Party leader once more on 10 September 2014. The party was re-registered under the new name in 2015.

The party is against globalisation, supporting renationalisation of the energy industry and protectionism.[5]

The Populist Party stood in its first UK General Election on 8 June 2017. The candidate, Russell White, won 50 votes in Lewisham West and Penge constituency.[6]

The party stood in the 2018 Sunderland City Council election, in Shiney Row ward where candidate Tony Morrow received 414 votes (13.2%), placing him third.
