The Aceh People's Party (Indonesian: Partai Rakyat Aceh), (PRA) is a regional political party in Indonesia. It is a left-wing party that opposes discrimination against women and has criticised the implementation of Islamic law in Aceh.[1]

The party contested the 2009 elections in the province of Aceh, and set a target of 12 seats (25%) in the Aceh provincial legislature. However, it won only 36,574 votes, 1.7% of the Aceh turnout, and failed to win any seats. The party did not qualify to contest the 2014 elections. [2][3][4]
