The European Party (Greek: Evropaiko Komma, Ευρωπαϊκό Κόμμα; abbreviated Ευρωκό, "Evroko") is a Centre-right[1] political party in Cyprus founded in 2005, largely out of the parties New Horizons and European Democracy. The party has a stricter stance on the Cyprus problem, and supports European integration and maintaining Greek influence in Cyprus. The party supports free market economic policies similar to that of the DISY and DIKO parties.

The party is a former member of the European Democratic Party.

In the elections of 21 May 2006, the party won 5.8% and 3 out of 56 seats. In the 2011 legislative elections the party won 3.88% and 2 out of 56 seats. In 2013 one of the two Members of parliament, originally of ex New Horizons, left the party to become an independent due to disagreement.
