Christian Democratic Party of Uruguay
|Headquarters||Aquiles Lanza 1318 bis Montevideo, Uruguay|
|National affiliation||Broad Front|
|International affiliation||Centrist Democrat International|
It is part of the governing coalition Broad Front (Frente Amplio). It is a part of the Progressive Alliance, which in turn forms part of the Liber Seregni Front uniting the more moderate centre-left and centrist sectors of the Broad Front.
The Civic Union (Uruguay) split from the party in 1971.
Its platform calls for "a communitarian society" and a "social state", as well as "absolute respect for human life" (including opposition to abortion). It further calls for "alternative forms of production, distribution, consumption and accumulation" that are "superior to capitalist and state-owned enterprises", including:
- a social market economy
- self-management or self-governing enterprises (autogestión)
- ecological economics
- respect for the commons
- support for the nonprofit sector
