New Democracy Party (Portuguese: Partido da Nova Democracia, pronounced: [pɐɾˈtidu dɐ ˈnɔvɐ dɨmukɾɐˈsiɐ]) was a small Portuguese eurosceptic liberal-conservative political party. In voting ballots, its name appeared only as New Democracy, with the acronym unchanged. The party was founded in 2003. It was, at the time, a new party which resulted from Manuel Monteiro's separation from the Democratic and Social Centre – People's Party. The party was a member of the EUDemocrats. Manuel Monteiro eventually would leave the party in 2009, which was led, since then, by Joel Viana until its extinction.
The party's registration was cancelled by the Constitutional Court on 23 September 2015, after the party failed to submit its required annual report in 2011, 2012, and 2013.
