Respublika (Kyrgyz: Республика, lit. 'Republic') is a political party in Kyrgyzstan. The party was formed in June 2010. Founded by Ömürbek Babanov, he served as its chairman until 2014, and during this time the party had a pro-Russia orientation. In 2014 the party merged with Ata-Zhurt to create Respublika–Ata Zhurt.[2] However, the two parties ended up splitting back in 2020.[3]

The party campaigned for the 2010 parliamentary elections on a platform stressing the ethnic diversity of Kyrgyzstan,[4] and is in favor of a parliamentary system of government, as well as reducing the number of MPs from 120 to 75.
