The Christian Labour Party (Portuguese: Partido Trabalhista Cristão; PTC), formerly named National Reconstruction Party (Portuguese: Partido da Reconstrução Nacional; PRN), is a liberal-conservative political party in Brazil.
The party was founded in 1985 as Youth Party (Partido da Juventude, PJ) by Daniel Tourinho, a Brazilian lawyer. In 1989 the party was renamed National Reconstruction Party. Fernando Collor de Mello representing this party was elected president in 1990.
After Collor's impeachment in 1992 the party suffered a deep crisis and eventually changed its name to Partido Trabalhista Cristão in 2000.
In 2016 Collor de Mello (now a senator) re-joined PTC, which thus regained parliamentary representation.
