Democratic Party – Demokraci.pl

The Democratic Party (Polish: Partia Demokratyczna – demokraci.pl), abbreviated to PD, is a centrist, liberal political party in Poland. It has no members of the Sejm, Senate, or European Parliament.

Its foundation was publicly announced on 28 February 2005 and formally established on 9 May 2005 as an 'enlargement' of the Christian democratic Freedom Union, which it legally succeeds. At the 2007 election to the Sejm, the party ran as part of the Left and Democrats (LiD) list, and won three of the alliance's 53 seats. These members left the party in 2009 to join the newly-revived Democratic Party.

The party is a member of the European Liberal Democrat and Reform Party.

Famous quotes containing the words democratic party, party and/or democratic:

    The Democratic Party is like a mule. It has neither pride of ancestry nor hope of posterity.
    Ignatius Donnelly (1831–1901)

    What is the disease which manifests itself in an inability to leave a party—any party at all—until it is all over and the lights are being put out?... I suppose that part of this mania for staying is due to a fear that, if I go, something good will happen and I’ll miss it. Somebody might do card tricks, or shoot somebody else.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    The Democratic Party is like a mule. It has neither pride of ancestry nor hope of posterity.
    Ignatius Donnelly (1831–1901)
