The Democratic Party (Macedonian: Демократска партија на Македонија, Demokratska Partija na Makedonija, DPM) was a political party in Macedonia.

History[edit]

The party first contested national elections in 1994, when it ran in the parliamentary elections that year. It received 1.5% of the vote in the first round and 1% in the second. It won a single seat,[1] taken by Tomislav Stojanovski.[2] The 1998 elections saw it run in an alliance with the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP). The alliance won four seats, all of which were taken by the LDP.[1]

The DPM contested the 2002 elections alone, but received just 0.2% of the vote and remained seatless. It did not contest any further elections.[3]
