The Democratic Progressive Party (Spanish: Partido Demócrata Progresista) is a provincial political party (which in its roots was progressive, but now is considered conservative) in Santa Fe, Argentina. It was founded by Lisandro de la Torre (among others) at the Savoy Hotel in Buenos Aires on December 14, 1914. One of its founders was the academic Dr. Carlos Ibarguren.
As of 2007, it was a member of the national Recrear electoral alliance led by Ricardo López Murphy and the Republican Proposal (PRO) alliance which backed López Murphy for the presidency in 2007. Regarding the Santa Fe province, it is part of an electoral alliance, called the Progressive, Civic and Social Front, as an opposition to the Peronist Front for Victory.
