The Partido Demokratiko Pilipino[4][5] (PDP; lit.'Philippine Democratic Party'), is a syncretic political party in the Philippines founded in 1982. It was the country's ruling party from 2016 to 2022 under the administration of Rodrigo Duterte.

Nominally democratic socialist and social democratic,[6] the party has shifted considerably since its first time in power in the 1980s and 1990s under Aquino. Since the election of Rodrigo Duterte, PDP-Laban is generally seen to have strayed from its initial social democratic objectives and shifted towards the right.
