The Party of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (Turkmen: Senagatçylar we Telekeçiler partiýasy) is a political party in Turkmenistan. The party was established in August 2012 as first legal opposition party in this country. On 10 June 2013, party leader Ovezmammed Mammedov was elected to the Assembly of Turkmenistan in a by-election held for five vacant seats. The party is widely seen as a tool of the ruling DPT to prevent criticism over Turkmenistan being a single-party state rather than having an actual opposition party.
