National Resurrection Party (Lithuanian: Tautos prisikėlimo partija, sometimes translated as Rising Nation Party[1] or National Revival Party[2]) was a centre-right political party in Lithuania. Founded in 2008, the party merged into the Liberal and Centre Union in 2011. The party was headed by a former Lithuanian performer and producer Arūnas Valinskas, who was the Speaker of Seimas until September 2009.

At the election of 12 October 2008 to the Seimas, the party won 15.09% of the popular vote and 13 seats in the first round. In the second round, the party won 3 additional seats, taking it up 16 seats in total. The party currently participates in a new governing coalition, along with Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats and the Liberal Movement, which gained a combined governmental majority of 72 out of 141 seats in the Seimas, led by Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius.

Several of its Seimas members left in 2010 to form the Christian Party. As a result, it formed a joint group in the Seimas with the Liberal and Centre Union, which had also experienced defections. The parties announced their full merger on 22 September 2011.
