Croatian Party of Rights Dr. Ante Starčević (Croatian: Hrvatska stranka prava dr. Ante Starčević) is a right-wing nationalist political party in Croatia.

It was founded in 2009 by Ruža Tomašić and others as a splinter party from the Croatian Party of Rights. It is named after Ante Starčević (1823–1896). In 2011, they reported a membership of 20,000.[2] They had limited electoral success in local elections, such as winning three seats in Vukovar city council in 2011.[3]

In 2011, Croatian Party of Rights Dr. Ante Starčević signed a pre-election coalition agreement with far right Croatian Pure Party of Rights.[4] In the Croatian parliamentary election, 2011, their coalition won one parliamentary seat.[5]

In late 2012, the party made a permanent coalition with the centre-right Croatian Democratic Union.[6] This coalition won the Croatian European Parliament election in 2013 and party president Ruža Tomašić was the highest ranking candidate on the winning list by preferential vote.[7] The party joined the European Conservatives and Reformists.[8]

On 3 November 2014, the party's founder and first president, Ruža Tomašić, left the party.[9]
