Navarre Yes or Nafarroa Bai (Basque) is a Navarrese (Spain) coalition of both left and right wing Basque nationalist parties which was created for the 2004 Spanish General election.

The coalition comprises Aralar, Eusko Alkartasuna (Basque Solidarity), Batzarre and the Basque Nationalist Party, but not the now outlawed Basque nationalists of Batasuna or ANV, traditionally the Basque nationalist party in Navarre with strongest support, for its stance on ETA's violence. All these parties usually run by themselves competing with each other at elections held in the neighbouring autonomous community of the Basque country but agreed to run together in Navarre (where Basque nationalism is not in the majority) as a means to optimize Basque nationalist electoral results in Navarre. The coalition reached the third place in the elections and won a seat in the Spanish Parliament in 2004, gaining 18.4% of votes cast in Navarre.

In 2007 the coalition became the second largest political force in Navarre's autonomous parliament (virtually tied with the PSN-PSOE) by gaining 23.7% of votes cast and 12 seats[1]. Five belong to Aralar, four to EA and one for each the BNP and Batzarre. One is independent.

Its most significant politicians are Patxi Zabaleta (Aralar), Maiorga Ramirez (Eusko Alkartasuna) and Uxue Barkos, who is a journalist who previously worked for Basque Television and is currently the coalition's only MP in the Spanish Parliament.

In the 2008 Spanish General Election, Navarre Yes repeated the results of 2004 (18.5%), being again the third party in the autonomous community and renewing its only seat in the Spanish Parliament.
