United Thai People's Party (Thai: ; RTGSPhak Sahaprachathai) is a political party in Thailand founded on 24 October 1968 was founded by Thanom Kittikachorn and Praphas Charusathien to recruit parliamentary support for their military junta.[1][2][3]

In the 1969 Thai general election United Thai People's Party won the most seats in election: 75 of 219 seats. The party was dissolved during the self-coup of Thanom Kittikachorn and Praphas Charusathien in November 1971 that brought a return to unrestricted military dictatorship.

After the October 1973 popular uprising that toppled the Thanom-Praphas regime, some of the more liberal former members of the United Thai People's Party joined the Social Action Party, while former secretary-general Dawee Chullasapya and his deputy Kris Sivara backed the Social Justice Party.[4]
