The Party of the Republic (Portuguese: Partido da República, PR) is a Brazilian political party.

History[edit]

It was founded on December 21, 2006 by the merger of the Evangelical-influenced Liberal Party (Partido Liberal, PL) and the far-right Party of the Reconstruction of the National Order (Partido da Reedificação da Ordem Nacional, PRONA).

At the 2010 elections, the party focused on the parliamentary elections; it won 41 of the 513 seats in the Chamber of Deputies and 4 of the 81 Senate seats.

Sergio Victor Tamer, the party's founder, was president from 2006-2014. Alfredo Nascimento succeeded Tamer as the president of the PR until April 2016 when he resigned due to the party leadership not supporting the Impeachment of Dilma Rousseff. However, 26 of the PR's MPs did vote for her impeachment.
