active in the Isle of Man
. They first contested elections in the 1946
election to the House of Keys
. They were formed as a conservative
alternative to the Manx Labour Party
which was running a high profile electoral campaign and had hopes of emulating the British Labour Party
's success in the previous year's United Kingdom general election

The MPPA fielded four candidates in Douglas and all were successful. This compared to the Labour Party who had nominated 18 candidates and returned only 2 MHKs.
