Democratic Renewal (DIANA, Greek: Δημοκρατική Ανανέωση (ΔΗ.ΑΝΑ.), Dimokratiki Ananeosi) was a Greek political party founded by Konstantinos Stephanopoulos on September 6, 1985. It continued to exist until June 1994.

Stephanopoulos left the New Democracy party in August 1985 over a conflict with Constantine Mitsotakis together with 15 other members of parliament. The party was able to obtain one seat in the 1989 (June) election and one in the 1990 election.
