The Democratic Current (Arabic: التيّار الديمُقراطي‎, romanizedat-Tayyār ad-Dīmuqrāṭī) is a social-democratic political party in Tunisia that was founded in 2013.

The party was initiated and remains to be led by the former secretary-general of the Congress for the Republic, Mohamed Abbou[2] who also served as deputy prime minister in the Jebali Cabinet until June 2012. It is committed to the project of realization of an "Arab federal state reuniting the Arab nations freed from the yoke of dictatorship".[1]

After the 2019 Tunisian parliamentary election, the party agreed to form a parliamentary bloc with the People's Movement.[3]
