The Mineiro Republican Party or Republican Party of Minas Gerais (Portuguese: Partido Republicano Mineiro (PRM)) was a Brazilian political party founded on 4 June 1888 and active during the First Brazilian Republic. It represented the republican ideology of the agrarian elite of the state of Minas Gerais.
It was initially controlled by politicians of Sul e Sudoeste de Minas until Artur Bernardes moved its control core to the Zona da Mata. Its executive committee (the "tarasca") was very powerful and took all the major decisions.
As with all Brazilian parties of the time, the PRM was abolished at the advent of the Estado Novo.
