The People's Democratic Party of Tajikistan (PDPT; Tajik: Ҳизби халқии демократии Тоҷикистон, romanized: Hizbi xalqii demokratii Tojikiston; Russian: Народная демократическая партия Таджикистана, romanized: Narodnaya demokraticheskaya partiya Tadzhikistana) has been the dominant and ruling party of Tajikistan since 1994. Founded in 1994 by Abdulmajid Dostiev as the People's Party of Tajikistan, the party is located in the Palace of Unity in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan. Since April 1998, the leader of the party has been the President of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahmon.
According to the party's charter, the PDPT is aimed at creating a "sovereign, democratic, secular, socially-oriented and unitary state with a stable economy". The statute also refers to "hopes for improving the well-being of society, protecting the interests of citizens, regardless of their social status, nationality or religious preferences". The party stands for a secular state and society and is also considered to be statist, Tajik nationalist and authoritarian.
The People's Democratic Party of Tajikistan has bilateral cooperation with foreign political parties including the Russia's ruling party United Russia, with the ruling Nur Otan in Kazakhstan, with the ruling New Azerbaijan Party, and with the Communist Party of China.
The party newspaper of the PDPT is Minbari Khalq (People's Tribune), published in Tajik, Russian and Uzbek languages twice a week, with a circulation of approximately 30,000 copies. Additionally, the party publishes socio-political magazines, including Mehvar and other magazines.
