The Mineiro Republican Party (Portuguese: Partido Republicano Mineiro (PRM)) was a Brazilian political party founded on 4 June 1888 and active during the República Velha. It represented the republican ideology of the agrarian elite of the state of Minas Gerais.

It was initially controlled by politicians of the Sul de Minas until Artur Bernardes moved it to the Zona da Mata. It's 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.
