Jordanian Democratic People's Party (in Arabic: Hizb Al-Sha'ab Al-Dimuqrati Al-Urduni, حزب الشعب الديمقراطي الأردني, abbreviated HASHD), is a political party in Jordan. HASHD was formed in 1989, when the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine separated their branch in Jordan to become a separate party.

HASHD publishes the weekly newspaper Al-Ahali. In the past, the party published the weekly newspaper al Lajna al Shaabiya.[1]
