Democratic Party (Philippines)
The Democratic Party was a political party in the Philippines.
It was to run candidates in the 1953 elections in all levels; however, its presidential candidate Carlos P. Romulo withdrew. After Romulo withdrew, his running mate Fernando Lopez also withdrew to run in the Senate election instead. Lopez and Ruperto Kangleon both won in the senatorial election, with Lopez topping the race.
The Democrats would later merge into the Nacionalista Party.
