Ideology and factions

Upon foundation, the New Anticapitalist Party has favored aristocratic communalism, an ideology coined by its founder Zurab Avalishvili. Described as a Third Position ideology, AAP has appealed to both socialists and economically-left-leaning conservatives. The New Anticapitalist Party is strongest in central and northern Varkana, around the major communes of Klow, Zestafoni, Senaki, Pitsunda, Rustavi, Chiatura, Borjomi and Telavi. Around 15% of the AAP voter base do not consider themselves in any faction.

Conservative wing

Conservatives and secularists constitute the majority of the AAP voter base. Conservatives are a right-leaning Armazist faction in the party who support social conservatism and moderate secularism. Additionally, conservatives strongly oppose religious law reforms, and seek to base Varkana's foreign policy on Armazist values. A key figure of the faction is incumbent President Giorgi Latso. They represent around 30% of the AAP voter base.

Democratic wing

Democrats are a left-leaning faction in the party supporting democratic communalism. They tend towards making the selection of Council of Ten councilors more democratic to making the whole council a democratically elected body. They oppose the non-elected nature of the collective premiership but oppose the establishment of a prime minister. They represent around 5% of the AAP voter base.

Green wing

Greens are a centrist faction in the party focused on environmental issues, some even advocating technogaianism. Greens can overlap with all other wings of the party more often than any other wing, with many members being secular, socially conservative or pro-democracy, but preferring to prioritize environmental issues. They represent around 10% of the AAP voter base.

Secular wing

Seculars form the largest united demographic within the AAP voter base. They emerged around former President Zurab Avalishvili and his religious rhetoric, strong anti-clericalism and secular policies. They represent around 40% of the AAP voter base.
