The Christian Democratic People's Party (Romanian: Partidul Popular Creştin Democrat; Христианско-демократическая народная партия) is a Christian democratic political party in Moldova. In the last legislative elections on March 6, 2005, the party won 9.1% of the popular vote and 11 out of 101 seats. Led by Iurie Roşca, the CDPP and the liberal PNL are the only major political parties in Moldova that support unification with Romania. Thanks to the support for the communist President Vladimir Voronin he got reelected. Since April 4, 2005 PPCD lost several deputies, mayors, councillors and members to the liberal-democrat parties. PPCD was an informal coalition party of the Communists.
It is the successor of the Democratic Movement of Moldova (1988–1989), Popular Front of Moldova (1989–1992), and the Christian Democratic Popular Front (1992–1999). In March 2005, the party became an observer member of the European People's Party (EPP). The party is a full member of the European Christian Political Movement (ECPM).
The 2002 one-month suspension of party's activities was found to be in violation of its freedoms of assembly and association by the European Court of Human Rights in 2006.
