The Progressive Conservative Party of Gristol-Serkonos is a political party in Gristol-Serkonos. It is one of two dominant parties in the country, alternating with the Social Democratic Party since the late 1950's. It is positioned at the centre-right to the right-wing of the Gristo-Serkonan political spectrum, with the Social Democratic Party positioned centre to centre-left. Like their Social Democratic rivals, the party is defined as a "big tent", welcoming a broad variety of members. The party is led by Kaniehtí:io Fox, who currently serves as the Chancellor of Gristol-Serkonos.

Formed in the early 1920's, the Progressive Conservatives participated in numerous National Coalition-led governments as a minor partner. In the 1950 elections propelled the first Progressive Conservative government of Adrian Thorne and remained in office until 1968. Another Progressive Conservative government was elected after the results of the 1978 election, with Mark Hawthorn becoming Chancellor. Hawthorn served from 1978 to 1980, with his term ending when a caucus revolt over his government policy. Brian Kariwase would lead the Progressive Conservatives in the 1984 elections. Kariwase served as Chancellor from 1980 to 1993, and his government was marked by free trade agreements and economic liberalization.

Toshiko Miki took over as leader of the Progressive Conservatives in 1993 following Kariwase's resignation. The party's unpopularity, coupled with rising inflation and a looming economic crisis led the party to its biggest defeat in the 1994 elections. The party would remain the Official Opposition for the next 25 years until the 2019 election when they finally won a majority government.
