The United Democrats of Hong Kong (Chinese: 香港民主同盟, 港同盟) was a pro-democracy political party in Hong Kong. By 1995 it was merged with the Meeting Point to form the Democratic Party. It was found by Martin Lee, Szeto Wah, Lau Chin Shek (expelled from Democratic Party in 2000), Lau Kong Wah (joined the DAB in 1998), Cheung Man Kwong, Man Sai Cheung (emigrated in 1994), Lee Wing Tat, Albert Chan, Ng Ming Yam (died in 1992) and Wong Hong Chong on April 6, 1990.

All founders mentioned above were elected to the Legislative Council in the election except Lau Kong Wah and Wong Hong Chung, Lau then quit the party and joined the pro-Beijing Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong.Fact|date=August 2007
