Democrats for Andorra (Catalan: Demòcrates per Andorra, DA) is the governing centre-right[2] political party in Andorra.

The party was established on 22 February 2011 as the direct successor of the Reformist Coalition which ran in the 2009 election.[2] Standing as main opposition party in the 2011 Andorran General Election, the Democrats for Andorra won 20 of the General Council's 28 seats, the largest majority since the passing of the Andorran Constitution in 1993.[3]

The party was formed from a union of the Liberal Party of Andorra and New Centre, with elements of the Social Democratic Party, and are supported by Lauredian Union and Andorra for Change.[2]

The party is led by Antoni Martí, who serves as Prime Minister of Andorra.
