The Peruvian Nationalist Party (Spanish: Partido Nacionalista Peruano) is a centrist political party in Peru.

Ollanta Humala was the Peruvian Nationalist Party's candidate for the 2006 presidential elections. The candidates of the party ran under the lists of the Union for Peru. In 2010, PNP formed the alliance Peru Wins ("Gana Perú") to participate in 2011 presidential elections. In the runoff vote on June 5 Olanta Humala was elected president. He took office on July 28, 2011.

The party opted to not take part in the 2016 elections, in order to preserve its status as an official party; in Peru, a party that fails to obtain above 5% in a national election is automatically removed from the registry of political parties. With the party's prospective presidential candidate Daniel Urresti polling at around 1% in the run-up to the election, the PNP decided to refrain from electoral politics until local elections in 2018.[5]
