The Democratic Party of Moldova (Moldovan: Partidul Democrat din Moldova, PDM, Демократическая партия Молдовы) is a social-democratic[1][2] political party in Moldova.



In the legislative elections of 6 March 2005, the party was part of the Electoral Bloc Democratic Moldova (Blocul Electoral Moldova Democrată), that won 28.4 % of the popular vote and 34 out of 101 seats. Inside the Bloc the party won 8 seats. After the elections the bloc fell apart into three parliamentary groups of the constituent parties.

The party, led by Marian Lupu, was founded in 1998 as the continuation of the Movement for a Democratic and Prosperous Moldova and is a member of Socialist International and the Party of European Socialists.[3] Dumitru Diacov was president of the Democratic Party (1997 until June 2009) and since then has been the honorary president.

The Social Liberal Party merged into the PDM on 10 February 2008.

After the July 2009 parliamentary election, the party became a political force within the Alliance for European Integration along with the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova, Liberal Party and Party Alliance Our Moldova.

In February 2010, approximately 11,000 members of the smaller Social Democratic Party defected to the PDM as Lupu seeks to "consolidate" the Moldovan centre-left.[4]
