The Third Way is a small centrist Palestinian political party active in the Palestinian National Authority (PNA). Founded on 16 December 2005, the party is led by Salam Fayyad and Hanan Ashrawi.

In the January 2006 PLC elections it received 2.41% of the popular vote and won two of the Council's 132 seats.

The party presents itself as an alternative to the two-party system of Hamas and Fatah.

On 15 June 2007, Palestinian National Authority President Mahmoud Abbas named Salam Fayyad Prime Minister of the new emergency government, following the Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip.
