National Trust Party (Malaysia)
The National Trust Party (AMANAH; Malay: Parti Amanah Negara), is a registered political party in Malaysia advocating a reformist strand of political Islam. The party was founded as the Malaysia Workers' Party before being handed over in August 2015 to Gerakan Harapan Baru (GHB), a group of progressive Islamist leaders of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) which lost in the June 2015 party election. This group of Islamists then redefined the Malaysia Workers' Party as an Islamic reformist party on 16 September 2015. The party currently has eleven elected Members of Parliament.[needs update] It is one of the four component parties of the government coalition in Malaysia called Pakatan Harapan (PH).

Malaysian Workers' Party (PPPM)Edit
The Malaysian Workers' Party (Malay: Parti Pekerja-Pekerja Malaysia) was founded in January 1978 by Ganga Nayar, the first female to head a political party in Malaysia. Nayar was its lone candidate for the 1978 general election in the Sungei Besi parliamentary constituency and the Sungei Way state constituency. She performed poorly and lost her deposits in both contests. Since then, the Workers' Party contested very few Malaysian elections.
Takeover by the Gerakan Harapan BaruEdit
GHB took over the Workers Party after its attempt to form a new party called Parti Progresif Islam (PPI) was rejected by the Home Ministry. Gerakan Harapan Baru was given permission to take over with the only given condition in the agreement with the existing party members that requires the party to not co-operate with Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition and the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO).
GHB chief Mohamad Sabu said they would then change the name of the Workers' Party to the National Trust Party. Once the new name was approved by the Registrar of Societies, it was expected that the Amanah party would be launched on 16 September in conjunction with Malaysia Day, with at least 35,000 members.
Rebranding to Parti Amanah NegaraEdit
Malaysian Workers' Party members approved the change of its name to Parti Amanah Negara (AMANAH) in an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) on 8 September 2015, which also resulted in the change of its logo and flag.
AMANAH was officially launched on 16 September 2015 at national level, while it was still awaiting the approval of the Registrar of Societies (RoS). AMANAH is taking over and rebranding the Workers' Party into a new political party spearheaded by progressive leaders, who have left PAS.
The new logo and flag was unveiled at its official launch on 16 September 2015.
