The Pirate Party (Arabic: حزب القراصنة, translit. Hizb al-Qarāṣina) is a small political party in Tunisia which was formed on 7 April 2012.[1] It is the second Pirate party in Tunisia after the Tunisian Pirate Party.[2]

The party achieved notoriety during the Tunisian revolution. Slim Amamou briefly held a ministry, the world's first Pirate Party politician ever to do so, before resigning to protest against repressive measures by the interim government.[3]
