The People's Ascent Party (Turkish: Halkın Yükselişi Partisi, HYP) is a Turkish political party founded by the Istanbul MP and theologian Yaşar Nuri Öztürk on 16 February 2005, adopting the principles of a democratic state of law.

In its manifesto, the party claims to be an advocate of social democracy, seeking to benefit Turkey and the Turkish people on the basis of a participatory and pluralistic democratic platform.

On 22 November 2009 Ragıp Önder Günay was elected the new party leader in 4th convention of HYP.[1]
