Spanish Nationalist Party (PNE; Spanish: Partido Nacionalista Español) was a Spanish nationalist political party active in the Second Spanish Republic. The PNE was founded by José María Albiñana in 1930.
The main points of the party platform were:
- Defence of the unity of Spain. Rejection of the Autonomous Regions.
- Respecting the "religious principles".
- Defense of social order. Opposition to class struggle.
- "Agrarian nationalism" and promoting cooperation and agricultural credit.
- Equitable taxation.
- Free elementary education and letting popular classes access to middle and upper education.
- Nationalization of health services and social assistance.
- International action to prevent the discrediting of Spain.
The ideological position of the PNE has been defined as "ultra-reactionary" and traditionalist. In fact, in his last will, José María Albiñana asked his followers to join the Traditionalist Communion.
