The Bread and Freedom Party (Arabic: حزب العيش والحرية‎;Eish we Horria), also translated as the Bread and Liberty Party,[2] is a socialist party in Egypt created by former members of the Socialist Popular Alliance Party.[3] The party is not registered as of 10 February 2014.[4]

280 members from the Socialist Popular Alliance Party gave their resignations in early November 2013, though the resignations were rejected by Abdel-Ghafar Shukr, the head of the party.[5] The Daily News Egypt site gives the number of resigning members as 304.[6] The resigning members criticized their former party for aligning itself with the military during the transitional period and defending the actions of the police.[6] The policies of the Bread and Freedom Party include wealth redistribution and development.[3]
