The People's Party (Latvian: Tautas partija, TP) was a centre-right political party in Latvia. It described itself as a conservative party. Party was the leader of three governments and was a member of another four.
Tautas partija was founded in 1998 by Andris Šķēle, a businessman and former prime minister, who was the chairman of the party until 2002. Because of Šķēle's powerful personality, many voters identified the party with its leader during this period. In 2002, Šķēle exited politics and Atis Slakteris became the chairman of Tautas partija.
