New Democracy Party (Portuguese: Partido da Nova Democracia, pronounced: [pɐɾˈtidu dɐ ˈnɔvɐ dɨmukɾɐˈsiɐ]) is a liberal conservative political party in Portugal without parliamentary representation. In voting ballots its name appears only as New Democracy, with the acronym unchanged. It is a new party which resulted from Manuel Monteiro separation from the Democratic and Social Centre – People's Party. The party is a member of the EUDemocrats. Manuel Monteiro eventually would leave the party in 2009, which is now led by Joel Viana.

In the 2011 presidential election, the PND's candidate was José Manuel Coelho. He won 4.5% of the vote: greatly surpassing expectations and pre-election polling.
