The Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party – Organization of Sudan (Arabic: حزب البعث العربي الاشتراكي - تنظيم في السودانHizb Al-Ba'ath Al-'Arabī Al-Ishtirākī - Tanẓīm fi Al-Sūdān) is the regional branch of the Damascus-based Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party in Sudan.

During the 1980s, the party was called Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party – Organization of Sudan (differentiating it from the pro-Iraqi party, called 'Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party – Country of Sudan'). The party contested the 1986 election as part of the Sudanese Progressive National Front.[1]

The party held its third regional congress in Khartoum on February 5–6, 2009. The congress elected Al-Tijani Mustafa Yassin as regional secretary, an 11-member Regional Command and a 23-member Central Committee. The congress stated that the party sought cooperation with the National Congress Party for the sake of forming a national front.[2][3] The party staunchly opposed independence of South Sudan.[3]
