The People's Democratic Party of Uzbekistan (Uzbek: O'zbekistan Xalq Demokratik Partiyasi, O'zXDP or PDPU) is a political party in Uzbekistan which was founded in October 1991 after the Communist Party of Uzbekistan voted to cut its ties with the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and change its name to PDPU. The party was led by President Islam Karimov since its foundation until 2007.

At the last legislative elections, 24 December 2004 and 9 January 2005, the party won 28 out of 120 seats.
