The All Mon Region Democracy Party (Burmese: မွန်ဒေသလုံးဆိုင်ရာ ဒီမိုကရေစီပါတီ, abbreviated AMRDP) is a political party in Myanmar, representing the interests of the Mon people.[1] In the Myanmar general election, 2010, which was boycotted by both the main opposition National League for Democracy and the other main Mon party, the Mon National Party, the AMRDP won 16 total seats, 3 in the Pyithu Hluttaw (the lower house), 4 in the Amyotha Hluttaw and 9 in regional hluttaws.[2]

In 2013, there were reports that the party agreed to merge with the MNP.[3] However, a party called the AMRDP contested the 2015 general election, where it won no seats in the national parliament and just one seat in the Mon State Hluttaw.
