Slovenska nacionalna stranka (kratica SNS) je slovenska izvenparlamentarna politična stranka. Trenutni predsednik stranke je Zmago Jelinčič Plemeniti. Stranka je znana po svojih kontroverznih stališčih, ki nasprotuje Cerkvi, desnici in EU-ju. Prednost daje vsem vprašanjem, ki so pomembna za domovino in socialno varnost, izobraževanje in zdravstvo, mnogi pa ji očitajo preveč nacionalistična stališča, ki včasih utegnejo biti tudi žaljiva, zato se je stranka že zapletala v spore glede državnih, spolnih, etničnih in rasnih vprašanj.

The Slovenian National Party (Slovene: Slovenska Nacionalna Stranka, SNS) is an extreme nationalist political party in Slovenia, led by Zmago Jelinčič Plemeniti. The party is renowned for its euroscepticism and opposes Slovenia's membership in NATO. It also opposes what it considers historical revisionism of events in Slovenia during World War II and, to an extent, is sympathetic towards the former Yugoslav Communist regime of Josip Broz Tito. Although the party usually refuses to position itself within a left-right political spectrum, its president Zmago Jelinčič Plemeniti defined himself as left wing in a 2000 interview for the magazine Mladina. According to researchers, the party combines elements of 'right-wing' and 'left-wing' ideology. The SNS is neither a left-wing, nor a right-wing party, but is according to Matej Kovačič, Valentina Hlebec and Samo Kropivnik nevertheless closer to the left.
At the Slovenian legislative elections on 21 September 2008, the party won 5.4% of the popular vote and five out of ninety seats, which is one less than at the previous election in 2004. Srečko Prijatelj, a former SNS member of the National Assembly, was in September 2010 the first member of the Slovenian parliament sentenced to prison. At the 2011 Slovenian parliamentary election on 4 December 2011, the party won 1.80% of votes, thus not reaching the parliamentary threshold of 4%.
