Well, almost but not quite.  GParted is a gnomelibs/gtk+-based front end
to _libparted_, not to GNU parted.

        GParted's front-end                parted's ncurses front-end
                 |                                     |
                 v                                     v
             libparted                              libparted

So, they're different but similar programs that use the same back-end
