The People's Liberation Party (Turkish: Halkın Kurtuluş Partisi, HKP) is a Marxist–Leninist communist party in Turkey. The HKP is based strongly around Hikmet Kıvılcımlı's ideas and philosophy.

The party was established on June 15, 2005, on the 35th anniversary of the 15–16 June Worker Resistance.

HKP considers itself the political heir of both the Vatan Partisi (Homeland Party)[citation needed], which was founded by Hikmet Kıvılcımlı in 1954, and the first Communist Party of Turkey, which was founded by Mustafa Suphi in 1920.

Hikmet Kıvılcımlı (1902–1971), who was a guerilla commander in the Turkish War of Independence when he was 17, devoted his life to the struggle of the working class, and the HKP is led by his example and political thought and theory.

Nurullah Ankut, a retired philosophy teacher from Konya, has been the head of the party since 2005.

HKP gained the right to participate in elections in the Turkish local elections of 2014, and they received a total of 26,654 votes. HKP participated in the Turkish general elections of June 2015 with 550 candidate from 85 voting section. They received a total of 60,396 votes or 0.13%.
