The National Progressive Unionist Party (Arabic: حزب التجمع الوطني التقدمي الوحدويtranslit.: Ḥizb al-Tagammu' al-Watani al-Taqadomi al-Wahdawi, commonly referred to as Tagammu) is a socialist political party in Egypt.

The party is considered to be a defender of the principles of the Egyptian Revolution of 1952. It calls for standing against attempts to reverse the revolution's social gains for labourers, the poor, and other low-income groups. In late 2014, the party withdrew from the Egyptian Front.[6]
