The Conservative Democrats of Slovakia (Slovak: Konzervatívni demokrati Slovenska, KDS) is a defunct Slovakian political party established by four MPs (František Mikloško, Vladimír Palko, Rudolf Bauer and Pavol Minárik) who belonged to the Christian Democratic Movement, but left it on 21 February 2008 over disagreements with the party leader. The party was established in July 2008.[3] The party was dissolved in 2014.[4]

KDS announced that František Mikloško would contest the 2009 presidential election.[5] Mikloško received 5.41% of the vote.[6]
