The Democratic Renewal Movement (or Tajaddod) is a reformist, secular political party in Lebanon. At the last legislative elections, in May and June 2005, the party was allied to the anti-Syrian March 14 Alliance, led by Future Movement of late Prime minister Rafic Hariri, that won these elections.

The Democratic Renewal was founded in 2001 by a group of 50 Lebanese political figures, intellectuals and businessmen. It is headed by Nassib Lahoud, former Presidential aspirant, deputy of the Metn region from 1991 until 2005.

The Democratic Renewal has one member in the Parliament, Misbah Ahdab of Tripoli in North Lebanon.
