The Christian Democratic People's Party (Romanian: Partidul Popular Creştin Democrat, CDPP; Христианско-демократическая народная партия) is a Christian democratic[1] political party in Moldova. The party was led by Iurie Roşca from 1994 until 2011. Until 2005, the CDPP and the (Moldovan) National Liberal Party were the main political organizations in the country supporting the unification of Moldova and Romania. After the CDPP began supporting the anti-unification Communist President Vladimir Voronin, the party has lost its unionist credentials while other parties such as the Liberal Party have taken over the pro-Romanian ideological space. The party has had very poor results in all subsequent elections. Since April 2005, the PPCD has lost several deputies, mayors, councillors and members to the liberal-democratic parties. The PPCD was an informal coalition partner of the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova from 2005-2009.

History[edit]

It is the successor of the Democratic Movement of Moldova (1988–1989), Popular Front of Moldova (1989–1992), and the Christian Democratic Popular Front (1992–1999). In March 2005, the party became an observer member of the European People's Party.[2]

The 2002 one-month suspension of party's activities was found to be in violation of its freedoms of assembly and association by the European Court of Human Rights in 2006.[3]
