The Democratic Congress Alliance was a political party in the Gambia. It was formed in the run-up to the 1960 general election by a merger of the Democratic Party and the Muslim Congress Party.[1] It won three seats. In the 1962 elections the party won only one seat, but was still invited to join Dawda Jawara's government.

For the 1966 elections it formed an alliance with the United Party, which won eight seats, but afterwards disappeared.
