Our Party (Romanian: Partidul Nostru), previously known as the Republican People's Party (Partidul Popular Republican, PPR) is a political party in Moldova. It was founded in 1999 as the Peasants' Christian Democratic Party of Moldova (Partidul Ţărănesc Creştin Democrat din Moldova).

At the 2005 parliamentary election, the party won 1.4% of the popular vote, but no seats.

The 6th National Conference of the Peasants' Christian Democratic Party of Moldova took place on 28 May 2005. The conference decided to change the name of the party to the Republican People's Party and adopted a new status and program. Its chairman became Nicolae Andronic. The party was in opposition to the Party of Communists, who governed until 2009.

On 13 April 2014 a party congress took place, in which Nicolae Andronic ceded leadership to Renato Usatîi, and the party was renamed Our Party (Partidul Nostru).[1][2] On 10 June 2014 the Ministry of Justice of Moldova announced that it had not recognised this action.[3][4]

On 8 February 2015 the Congress of party was repeated and on 27 February 2015 the Ministry of Justice approved the modifications to the party program, status, the new name and new leader.[5][6]
