The Humanist Party (Hungarian: Humanista Párt) was a political party in Hungary, and it was a member of the Humanist International.


The Humanist Party (HP) was founded in 1993 and became a member of the Humanist International. As the party did not run in two consecutive elections (1994 and 1998), the Court of Budapest ceased its operations according to the existing legislation. The party re-established in January 2003.

At the legislative election, on April 7 and 21, 2002, the party won no seats. At the local election in 2002 the party in Budapest won 0.36% of the popular vote and no seats.

The Humanist Party made an electoral alliance with Politics Can Be Different (LMP) at the 2009 European Parliament elections. The coalition garnered 75,522 votes, (or 2.61% of the total votes), which was less than the 5% needed to gain a seat for the 2009–2014 cycle.[1] In March 2010 the Humanist Party broke the agreement and decided no to run at 2010 Hungarian parliamentary election.[2] The Humanist Party dissolved in November 2012 and transformed itself to a civil organization.
