The MIÉP–Jobbik Third Way Alliance of Parties (MIÉP–Jobbik a Harmadik Út pártszövetség) was an electoral alliance in Hungary led by István Csurka and Dávid Kovács. In 2005, the Hungarian Justice and Life Party (MIÉP) joined forces with a newer political party, namely the Jobbik (Movement for a Better Hungary), and some members of the agricultural Independent Smallholders Party. The new political formation was registered under the name the "Third Way" (Harmadik Út) and it worked for restoring Christian values in Hungary.

At the 2006 legislative election, April 9 and 23, the party won 2.2% of the popular vote and no seats. The alliance broke up shortly thereafter.
