Croatian Civic Party (Croatian: Hrvatska građanska stranka or HGS) is a right-wing political party in Croatia. It was established in September 2009 by Željko Kerum, an entrepreneur and mayor of Split after he won the mayoral elections as an independent candidate. During his mayoral campaign he often criticized political parties. Between 2009-2013 it was the ruling party in the city of Split in coalition with the far-right Croatian Pure Party of Rights (HČSP). Having lost Split in the 2013 local elections, the party still has two representatives in the Croatian Parliament.

For the 2011 elections the party formed a pre-election coalition with the Croatian Democratic Union for the two Dalmatian constituencies and won 2 seats in the parliament for himself and his sister Nevenka Bečić. In the parliamentary 2015 elections, the party won only 2234 votes in the two Dalmatian constituencies and became a non-parliamentary party
