The Alga Kyrgyzstan (Forward Kyrgyzstan) Party is a political party in Kyrgyzstan. The party was founded on September 7, 2003. The current Chairman of the party is Bolot Begaliev but one of its notable founders was Bermet Akayeva, eldest daughter of former President Askar Akayev. However, Bermet did not run as a candidate of the party. In the February 2005 parliamentary elections, the party won 19 seats.

The party was formed from the merger of five separate parties. They were as follows The Manas El, the New Time, the New Movement and the Party of Cooperators. On December 8, 2003 the Birimdik Party agreed to merge with the party.

Following the 2005 Tulip Revolution the future of the party remains unclear.
