The Croatian Democratic Peasant Party (Croatian: Hrvatska demokratska seljačka stranka or HDSS) is a minor conservative political party in Croatia.

The party is led by Ivo Lončar, a popular television news reporter who was elected as a member of the 2000-2003 Parliament from the Croatian Peasant Party list; he subsequently left the party and became an independent deputy. In the November 2003 elections he led the party list of HDSS and two other smaller parties and managed to retain his seat in the Parliament. The alliance won 1.0% of the popular vote and 1 out of 151 seats.
