New Progressive Party (Partido Nuevo Progresista, PNP)


The New Progressive (Partido Nuevo Progresista, PNP) sometimes translated to New Party for Progress is a political party that advocates for Puerto Rico to become a state of the United States. The party was founded in 1967 by dissidents from the Republican Statehood Party which were dissatisfied with the party after it instructed its members to not participate in the referendum held that same year.

The PNP is one of the two major parties in Puerto Rico with significant political strength and currently holds the seat of resident comissioner. The party also currently has a minority of the seats in both the Senate and House of Representatives, and in the seats of mayors in the municipalities of Puerto Rico.

Politically, the party is contrasted by the Popular Democratic Party (PPD) which advocates for maintaining the current political status of Puerto Rico as that of an unincorporated territory of the United States with self-government and the Puerto Rican Independence Party (PIP) which advocates for the independence of Puerto Rico.

Party members are commonly called penepés, progresistas, or estadistas ("statehooders") and affiliate with both the Republican and Democratic Party of the United States.
