The Party for Democracy ("Partido por la Democracia") is a governing political party in Chile; it is social democratic in its political orientation. The party nominated, as part of the Concertacion (Coalition of Parties for Democracy), in the 1999/2000 presidential elections Ricardo Lagos Escobar, the main leader of the party, who won 48.0 % in the first round and was elected with 51.3 % in the second round. At the legislative elections of 2001, the party won as part of the Coalition of Parties for Democracy 20 out of 120 seats in the Chamber of Deputies and 3 out of 38 elected seats in the Senate. This changed at the 2005 elections to 21 and 3.

The party has recently entered a period of crisis after corruption scandals.
