The Party of Sicilians (Italian: Partito dei Siciliani, PdS) is an regionalist political party in Italy, which is the regional section of the Movement for the Autonomies (MpA) in Sicily.
In the run-up of the 2012 Sicilian regional election Raffaele Lombardo, President of Sicily and MpA leader, decided not stand for re-election, but wanted to reinfornce the regionalist path traced by his party. In August 2012 it was announced that the Sicilian section of the MpA would be renamed. The newly formed PdS supported Gianfranco Micciché for President, as part of a "Sicilianist" coalition including also Micciché's Great South (GS), the Sicilian People's Movement and the local wing of Future and Freedom. Micciché won 15.4% of the vote and the PdS obtained a mere 9.5%.
The PdS/MpA failed to pass the electoral thresholds in the 2013 general election (the GS–MpA got a mere 0.4% nationally in the Chamber race, while the PdS regional list for the Senate garnered just 2.2% of the vote), but, thanks to an agreement with the The People of Freedom, had one deputy (Angelo Attaguile) and two senators (Antonio Scavone and Pippo Compagnone) elected. Attaguile chose to team up with Lega Nord in the "Lega Nord–Autonomies" parliamentary group.
