National Unity Party (NUP) is a political party in the Philippines. The party was formed by former members of the Lakas Kampi CMD who broke away after internal discontent within the party. The party is part of the Liberal-led coalition in the House of Representatives.

The party was accredited by the Commission of Elections as a national party in a resolution dated October 5, 2011.[1]

On September 26, 2012, the party held its first national convention where they announced support for Team PNoy for the 2013 elections, however most NUP members ultimately supported the United Nationalist Alliance, especially Garcia.
