Antigua People's Party (APP)

The Antigua People's Party was a minor political party in Antigua and Barbuda. It began as a faction within the Progressive Labour Movement, an opposition party founded in 1968. This faction, called the Antigua Progressive Movement, believed that the state's political parties should be separate from the trade unions.  In 1969, the faction left the PLM to campaign independently. The group included Reuben Harris, a member of parliament who entered the House of Representatives on the opposition PLM ticket in the 1968 by election.

The party was headed by wealthy lawyer-businessman John Rowan Henry. The APP comprised mainly prominent businessmen and was considered a conservative party.

The APP attracted few votes at the 1971 general election, and it soon folded into the Antigua Labour Party in July 1974.
