Partido Puertorriqueños por Puerto Rico (PPR)
The Puerto Ricans for Puerto Rico Party (Partido Puertorriqueños por Puerto Rico, PPR) is a Puerto Rican political party. Founded in 2003, it was certified for the first time by the State Electoral Commission in May 2007.

The PPR was originally organized as an ecological party, similar to green parties in Europe. It later broadened its platform and ideology to include economic issues, the political status of Puerto Rico, and citizen participation in government.

The position that PPR has taken on the issue of the political status of Puerto Rico has been a non-traditional one in Puerto Rican politics. The PPR's position is a neutral one. The party has not and will not take a side on the issue of Puerto Rico's status. In fact, candidates and officials of PPR are actually people with diverse opinions on what the future status of Puerto Rico should be. PPR has managed to enlist in one same party followers of Statehood, Independence, and Commonwealth. The party's stance is that the issue of the status of Puerto Rico should be discussed after bigger problems that affect Puerto Ricans' daily life are resolved.
