The Party of the Corsican Nation (Corsican: U Partitu di a Nazione Corsa) is a political party seeking autonomy for Corsica. It was founded in Corte in 2002 by members of three nationalist parties, Union of the Corsican People (UPC), A Scelta Nova and A Mossa Naziunale.

The PNC advocates autonomy for Corsica, not full independence. It rejects the violent action by the National Front for the Liberation of Corsica.

In the first round of the 2007 French presidential election the party supported Dominique Voynet, candidate for The Greens.

The party has one seat in the general council of Corse-du-Sud, five seats in the Corsican Assembly and one Member of European Parliament, François Alfonsi elected in the 2009 European election (South-East) on the Europe Écologie list.

The party's candidate in the 2010 territorial elections, Gilles Simeoni won a record 18.4% of the vote in the first round and qualified for the runoff.

The PNC is a member of the European Free Alliance and is pro-European and regionalist.
