The Action Movement for Renewal (Mouvement Action Renouveau) is a political party in the Republic of the Congo. Its founder was Jean-Baptiste Tati Loutard, who was President of the MAR until his death in 2009 and also served in the government as Minister of State for Hydrocarbons. The party supports President Denis Sassou Nguesso[1] and its current President is Roland Bouiti-Viaudo, the Mayor of Pointe-Noire.

MAR held its constitutive congress in late December 2006, marking its transformation into a political party; 342 delegates attended the congress.[1] In the parliamentary election held on 24 June and 5 August 2007, the party won five out of 137 seats.[2]
