The Progressive Democratic Party (Malay: Parti Demokratik Progresif, Abbreviation: PDP), formerly known as Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) is a Sarawak based political party in Malaysia founded in 2002. The party was founded in the wake of the de-registration of the Sarawak National Party (SNAP) in November 2002 by a faction aligned to the Chief Minister of Sarawak, Abdul Taib Mahmud, led by William Mawan Ikom. The party has rebrand that using a new name - Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) and a new logo in 2017, planned to expand to West Malaysia states e.g. Selangor, Negri Sembilan and the Klang Valley and now already established 6 divisions in Johor.
