The National Party (Turkish: Ulusal Parti) is a nationalist party in Turkey. The party was founded by Gökçe Fırat Çulhaoğlu in 2010.[6]

This party's main idols are Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Doğan Avcıoğlu and Sultan Galiev.Unlike other Socialist parties in Turkey,they often criticise Marxism for being Eurocentrist. They describe Kemalism as Socialism with Turkish characteristics. Socialist leaders they support are especially third worldist and left-wing nationalist leaders like Yasser Arafat, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Hugo Chavez, Josip Broz Tito and Patrice Lumumba.

This party supports Nationalism against Imperialism and ethnic separatism, Socialism against Capitalism, Secularism against Religious Fundamentalism.

Despite this party mainly supports civic and cultural kind of nationalism,they also have Pan-Turkist tendencies. They support an aggressive foreign diplomacy against Armenia and Greece. They are against any alliance with NATO,EU,China and Russia;they are in favour of a Turkic union.[7]

They are often accused for being chauvinistic and racist in Kurdish issue,because of mottos like "There is not a Kurdish problem but a Kurdish invasion!","I trade with Turks,therefore my money doesn't flow to PKK","Save your cities from invasion(of Kurds)" etc. However Gökçe Fırat claims,Kurdish ethnicity and language are artificial,which were created by imperialist powers,especially Tsarist Russia and British Empire. Also he says,"For us,in Turkey there is only and one nation and it's Turkish nation.We don't recognise any other ethnic and national identities.That's why we don't discriminate anyone,we see every citizen as Turks."[8]

The party publishes Türksolu and İleri.
