The National Movement for the Cultural and Social Revolution (Mouvement National pour la Révolution Culturelle et Sociale or MNRCS) was a political party in Chad. It was the successor to the Chadian Progressive Party (PPT) and existed from 1973 to 1975 as the country's sole legal party, under the strict control of the President Ngarta Tombalbaye. Second in command, but without real power, was Abbo Nassour, President of the National Assembly of Chad. The party ceased to exist after the coup that overthrew Tombalbaye in 1975, as one of the first decisions of the new government led by Félix Malloum was to banish the MNRCS.
