The Left also known as the Left Party (Etruscan: La gauche or LG) is an economically socialist, socially progressive political party in Andalus. It is one of the few quasi-communist parties to be democratically elected.
The party opposes the expansion of capitalism, and advocates for the creation of an egalitarian society through radical change. It encourages increased immigration and integration for illegal immigrants into Andalusian society. In regards to Columbian integration, LG supports Andalus' full integration into a 'Federal Columbia' (the Columbian Union), which has been stalled since the hotly contested 2011 Andalusian referendum, in which Tiberian voters narrowly rejected. LG also supports the restoration of the 1965 Constitution of the Republic of Andalus, which has been labeled illiberal and supportive of a hybrid regime.
The party is the most left-wing party of the four represented in the Andalusian Parliament, and the most left-wing in Andalusian history, and has self-identified as far-left.
The Left advocates for Andalus' re-entrance into the international setting.
The Left has introduced radical reforms aimed a dismantling capitalism in Andalus, hiking taxes on incomes over $250,000, greatly increasing government control over the Deira Stock Market, and raising the minimum wage to $25, which can comfortably support a family of four. This symbolizes a drastic shift from the economic policies of Socialist Prime Minister Mansour Reza.
The party passed a new budget for the 2016 fiscal year, attributing almost $1 trillion dollars to new programs, aimed at improving infrastructure and construction in Andalus' largely underdeveloped Western regions, signalling the largest budget in Andalusian history. La Gauche has even proposed the possibility of deficit spending, in order to maintain its course.
