The European Party (Greek: Evropaiko Komma, Ευρωπαϊκό Κόμμα; abbreviated Ευρωκό, "Evroko") is a Centre-right[1] political party in Cyprus founded in 2005, largely out of the parties New Horizons and European Democracy. The party has a stricter stance on the Cyprus problem, and supports European integration and maintaining Greek influence in Cyprus. The party supports free market economic policies similar to that of the DISY and DIKO parties.

The party is a former member of the European Democratic Party.
