The Indonesian Solidarity Party (Indonesian: Partai Solidaritas Indonesia, abbreviated PSI) is a political party in Indonesia that focuses on women's rights, pluralism, and Indonesian youth. It is led by former television presenter Grace Natalie, who is also a co-founder of the party.

Party leaders encourage Indonesian youths to engage in politics through local elections and Independence Day celebrations. The party uses Facebook and Twitter for campaigns, and uses hashtags such as #Merdeka100Persen (100 percent independent) on Independence Day and #KepoinPilkada (Participate in local elections) for local elections.[1][2]

PSI's platform is solidarity and pluralism. The party claimed its members are youths and it rejects former members of other parties who try to join. The maximum age to register to join the party is 45, while most of its members are around 20-30 years old.[3] Thus, none of PSI's members currently hold a seat in either national or local government.

The Komisi Pemilihan Umum in February 2018 announced that PSI had passed a verification process to be eligible to contest the 2019 general election.[4]

PSI has endorsed incumbent President Joko Widodo for the 2019 election.[5]
