Ar-Namys (Dignity) Party is a political party in Kyrgyzstan. It was founded on July 9, 1999 by former Prime Minister Felix Kulov. The party quickly became the nation's leading opposition party but was barred from the 2000 parliamentary elections. However, since the party was barred its members formed a bloc with the Democratic Movement of Kyrgyzstan. With Kulov serving time for criminal charges, the party's members worked over the next years to both clear his name and establish a broad opposition coalition.

In 2001 the party formed the People's Congress of Kyrgyzstan an electoral alliance with three other opposition parties. Kulov was chosen Chairman. However, in 2004 the party joined the For Fair Elections alliance, in preparation for the February 2005 parliamentary elections.
