New Start (Hungarian: Új Kezdet), also known as UK, is a political party in Hungary founded by György Gémesi, mayor of Gödöllő. The party adheres to a centrist Third Way political philosophy.
The party was founded in 2017, although Gémesi had floated the formation of his own party on previous occasions. He announced the formation of the party on March 15, along with its 12-point platform.
In July of that year, Gémesi announced that he was negotiating cooperation with centrist party Politics Can Be Different (LMP). In December 2017, György Gémesi and Bernadett Szél has agreed, that the New Start and the Politics Can Be Different is running together in the 2018 Hungarian parliamentary election. During the election, György Gémesi was elected as MP but later resigned, and Krisztina Hohn replaced him on June 11. She joined the Politics Can Be Different group at the National Assembly.
In July 2018, György Gémesi announced that his party would no longer cooperate with the LMP for the next year's European Parliament and municipal elections.
At the European level, the party joined the European Democratic Party in February 2019.
