The Christian-Democratic National Peasants' Party (Partidul Naţional Ţărănesc Creştin Democrat, PNŢ-CD) is a Romanian Christian-Democratic party. It is the successor of the National Peasants' Party (which, in turn, was the successor of the Romanian National Party from Transylvania).
The party was founded by Corneliu Coposu and Ion Raţiu in December 1989 under the name Partidul Naţional Ţărănesc Creştin şi Democrat (PNŢCD or PNŢcd, Christian-Democratic National Peasants' Party). It was the first officially registered political party after the fall of Communism.
In March 2005, PNŢCD voted to change its name to Christian-Democratic People's Party (Partidul Popular Creştin-Democrat, PPCD) after the unification with Union for Romanian Reconstruction. Nowadays, this party return to its traditional name Partidul Naţional Ţărănesc Creştin Democrat – PNŢCD.
The party is currently split between a wing supporting Marian-Petre Miluţ as president, that decided on an alliance with the governing Democratic Liberal Party, and one supporting Victor Ciorbea as president, and favouring an alliance with the opposition National Liberal Party.
Its motto as of 2006 is Fiecare contează (Everyone counts).
