The National Progressive Unionist Party (in Arabic: Hizb al Tagammu' al Watani al Taqadomi al Wahdawi حزب التجمع الوطني التقدمي الوحدوي, commonly referred to as Tagammu) is a socialist political party in Egypt. The party is considered to be the defender of the principles of the 1952 Revolution. It calls for standing against attempts to reverse the 1952 Revolution's social gains for laborers, the poor, and other low-income groups.
The Egyptian Social Democratic Party and the Tagammu Party ran in the 2012 Shura council election as part of the Egyptian Bloc. The division of seats between the two parties in the Shura Council is unclear.
- Rejection of religious extremism.
- Building the character of the Egyptian citizens.
- Ending the State monopoly over the media.
- Raising awareness of environmental issues.
- Developing the Egyptian industries.
