New Party (Greek: Νέο Κόμμα) is a former Greek conservative political party founded in 1947 by Spyros Markezinis. The party was formed after Spyros Markezinis broke away from the People's Party. 18 MPs joined the newformed party, mainly from the People's Party.

In the Greek legislative election, 1950 the party elected only one MP, Andreas Stratos. Consequently, in August 1951 the party merged into Greek Rally of Marshal Alexandros Papagos.
