The Hanrapetutyun Party (Armenian: Հանրապետություն կուսակցություն; Republic Party), is a pro-European political party in Armenia. The party was founded by ex-members of Republican Party of Armenia and members of the Yerkrapah Volunteer Union: Aram Sargsyan, Albert Bazeyan, Vagharshak Harutiunyan, Ara Ketikyan and others, in April, 2001.

At the parliamentary elections 2003, the party won 1 out of 131 seats. In the 2007 Armenian parliamentary elections it didn't win any seats with a popular vote of 1.65%.

In the 2017 Armenian parliamentary election and 2017 Yerevan City Council election, it took part in the elections as part of the Way Out Alliance (YELQ) together with Civil Contract and Bright Armenia parties.[1]

After the Velvet Revolution in 2018, Civil Contract whose leader Nikol Pashinyan led the revolution, left the Way Out Alliance and the Hanrapetutyun Party formed an alliance with Bright Armenia called Bright Alliance. The Alliance took part in 2018 Yerevan City Council election with Hanrapetutyun Party's deputy leader Artak Zeynalyan as a Mayoral candidate.[2]

Before the 2018 Armenian parliamentary election, the party formed the We Alliance with the Free Democrats Party.[3] The Alliance received only 2.00% of the votes. As this was lower than the 5% minimum threshold required, the We Alliance of Hanrapetutyn and Free Democrats failed to gain any representation in the Armenian parliament.
