The Peace and Development Party (PDP) (Somali: Xisbiga Nabadda Iyo Horumarka) is a moderate Islamic democratic political party in Somalia. It was established in April 2011 by Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, the former President of Somalia.[1] PDP members unanimously elected him as the party's Chairman in April 2011, with a mandate to serve as leader for the next three years.[2] The party's leadership also has ties with Al-Islah, Somalia's branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.[3]
