The German-Baltic Reform Party (German: Deutsch-Baltische Reformpartei) was a Baltic German political party in Latvia during the inter-war period. It contested elections as part of the Committee of the German Baltic Parties alliance. The party was led by Edwin Magnus.[1]


The party was formed on 25 January 1920 by moderate rightwing-liberal sectors in the German minority. It was dissolved on 15 May 1934 following the self-coup by Kārlis Ulmanis.
