Party of the Socialist Revolution (in French: Parti de la Révolution Socialiste) was a clandestine opposition party in Algeria. PRS was founded in 1962 by Muhammad Boudiaf. The existence of PRS was announced in connection with the election to the National Assembly. The membership of PRS was largely made up by former FLN guerrillas of the Wilaya of Constantine, trade union cadre and Algerian diaspora.

PRS was suppressed by the regime. Boudiaf and other leaders were jailed in the months following the founding of the party.

PRS published Le Révolutionnaire.

In 1965 PRS established its headquarters in France.
