DescriptionThe Yorkshire Party, formerly known as Yorkshire First, is a regionalist political party in Yorkshire, a region of England. Launched by Richard Carter and Stewart Arnold ahead of the 2014 European Parliament election, it campaigns for the establishment of a Yorkshire Parliament within the UK, similar to the Scottish Parliament or National Assembly of Wales.

It is otherwise described as a party of the "pragmatic centre", with "progressive views on economic, social and environmental issues". Its constitution rejects the whip system, and its candidates agree to abide by Martin Bell's code of conduct for politicians
