The National Peasants' Party–Alexandrescu (Romanian: Partidul Național Țărănesc–Alexandrescu, PNȚ-A) was a political party in Romania.

History

The party was established as a breakaway from the National Peasants' Party and led by Anton Alexandrescu. In May 1946 it was one of the parties that established the Bloc of Democratic Parties, alongside the Romanian Social Democratic Party, the National Liberal Party–Tătărescu, the Ploughmen's Front, the Romanian Communist Party and the National Popular Party.[1] In the November 1946 elections the Bloc won 347 of the 414 seats, with the PNȚ-A taking 20.[2]

In 1948 the party merged into the Ploughmen's Front.[3]
