The Hungarian Socialist Workers' Party (Magyar Szocialista Munkáspárt (MSZMP) in Hungarian) was the ruling communist party of Hungary during the Cold War between 1956 and 1989. It was organised from parts of the Hungarian Working People's Party, during the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. On November 4 1956 the party fell under the sway of János Kádár and the Soviet Union.

In 1989 it separated into two parties: the majority Hungarian Socialist Party and the minority Hungarian Socialist Workers' Party.
