The People's Democratic Party (Spanish: Partido Demócrata Popular, PDP) was a christian-democratic Spanish political party.

In 1989 the party, along with the Popular Alliance and the Liberal Party (PL), merged with others to create the new Popular Party (PP).

The party President was Óscar Alzaga until 1986, then Javier Rupérez led the party into a merger with AP and PL. Jaime Mayor Oreja, now a leading PP politician, was a leading member of PDP.
