The Hungarian National Independence Party (Hungarian: Magyar Nemzeti Függetlenségi Párt, MNFP), also known as the Party of Radical Defence, was a political party in Hungary in the inter-war period.


The party was established in 1923 by a right-wing breakaway from the Unity Party led by Gyula Gömbös, and initially had seven seats in Parliament.[1] However, promoting a racist agenda,[2] it won only two seats in the 1926 elections.[3]

The party was disbanded in September 1928, with its members rejoining the Unity Party
