The Democratic Party of National Confidence (Spanish: Partido Demócrata de Confianza Nacional - PDCN) is a Nicaraguan political party founded by Agustín Jarquín and Adán Fletes after a split from Social Christian Party (PSC) in 1986. The PDCN received legal status on appeal in 1989. It was part of the National Opposition Union (UNO) coalition[1] in 1990 and had 5 seats (of UNO's 51) in the National Assembly. Jarquín was the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) vice-presidential candidate in the 2001 elections. In 1992 the PDCN and the Popular Social Christian Party (PPSC) formed the Christian Democratic Union (UDC).
