The Centre Democrats (Danish: Centrum-Demokraterne, CD) was a Danish political party. It was formed in 1973 by Erhard Jakobsen, a former MP and mayor of Gladsaxe, as a right-wing splinter group from the Danish Social Democrats. It has participated in both centre-right governments (1982–1988) and centre-left governments (1993–1996).
In the 2001 election it lost its parliamentary representation, a severe setback for the party. In the 2005 election it got 33,635 votes (1% of votes nationwide). It also ran in several municipalities in the Danish municipal election in November 2005. It also ran in simultaneous elections to the new Regional Councils, except in Region Midtjylland where a local party official forgot to hand in the required number of voters' signatures before the deadline closed.
On January 26, 2008, an extraordinary party conference decided to dissolve the party by February 1, 2008.
