National Party (Urdu: نيشنل پارٹی) is a Baloch political party active in the south-western province of Balochistan, Pakistan. It was created in October 2003 when the non-tribal, essentially middle-class group Balochistan National Democratic Party (BNDP) led by Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo and Sardar Sanaullah Zehri merged with the main faction of Balochistan National Movement (BNM) led by Dr. Abdul Hayee Baloch. As a result, Abdul Hayee Baloch became the party chairman and Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo, the secretary general of the new party[1].

The party boycotted the 2008 general elections in protest of military operation conducted by the federal government in the province. However, Sanaullah Zehri and his followers decided to contest elections forming a faction called NP Parliamentarians.[2] As a result, National Party won one provincial assembly seat with Sanuallah Zehri winning PB-33 Khuzdar-I.
