The Party of National Mobilization (Portuguese: Partido da Mobilização Nacional, PMN) is a national-centrist political party in Brazil founded by politicians from the state of Minas Gerais on April 21, 1984, advocating for agrarian reform, termination of debt payments, ending of relations with the International Monetary Fund and formation of a trade bloc with other South American nations.

Due to some problems with the Brazilian Electoral Court, the PMN's registration was ceased in January 1989. The party restarted in June of the same year. At the legislative elections in Brazil, 6 October 2002, the party won 1 out of 513 seats in the Chamber of Deputies and no seats in the Senate. From 2002 to 2010, the PMN was one of the members of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's coalition.

At the 2010 elections, the PMN won four seats in the Chamber of Deputies and won the governorship of the state of Amazonas. In the Presidential race, the party supported the coalition of José Serra.
