The Malaysia Makkal Sakti Party (Malay: Parti Makkal Sakti Malaysia; Tamil: மலேஷியா மக்கள் சக்தி கட்சி) (abbrev: MMSP) is a political party in Malaysia that seeks to champion ethnic Malaysian-Indian issues. It is an unaffiliated offshoot of the apolitical Hindu Rights Action Force (HINDRAF) movement formed by disgruntled former members and has copied HINDRAF's slogan of People's Power (மக்கள் சக்தி / Makkal Sakti) as the party name.[1][2][3]

Though not an official member of the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition party, MMSP maintains friendly relations to BN and seeks to be admitted to the coalition.[4][5]
