National Unity Party (Filipino: Partido ng Pambansang Pagkakaisa) commonly known as (NUP) is a political party in the Philippines. The party was formed by former members of Lakas-Kampi CMD who broke away after internal discontent within the party. Since 2016, the party is part of the PDP-Laban-led coalition in the House of Representatives, the Coalition for Change.[2][3]

The party was accredited by the Commission of Elections as a national party in a resolution dated October 5, 2011.[4]

On September 26, 2012, the party held its first national convention where they announced support for Team PNoy for the 2013 elections, however most NUP members ultimately supported the United Nationalist Alliance, especially Garcia.

According to the party's constitution, NUP's principles include the following: belief in God; sovereignty of the state, national interest and democracy; social justice and responsibility; and environmental awareness.[5]
