The Christian Democratic People's Party (Romanian: Partidul Popular Creştin Democrat, CDPP; Христианско-демократическая народная партия) is a Christian democratic[1] political party in Moldova. In the legislative elections held on March 6, 2005, the party won 9.1% of the popular vote and 11 out of 101 seats. The party is led by Iurie Roşca. Until 2005, the CDPP and the National Liberal Party used to be the only major political parties in Moldova that supported the unification with Romania. However, since the CDPP's support for the Communist President Vladimir Voronin, the party lost its unionist credentials while other unionist parties such as the Liberal Party and the National Liberal Party have taken over the pro-Romanian ideological space. The party has had very poor results in all subsequent elections. Since 4 April 2005, PPCD lost several deputies, mayors, councillors and members to the liberal-democratic parties. The PPCD was an informal coalition party of the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova.


It is the successor of the Democratic Movement of Moldova (1988–1989), Popular Front of Moldova (1989–1992), and the Christian Democratic Popular Front (1992–1999). In March 2005, the party became an observer member of the European People's Party.[2]

The 2002 one-month suspension of party's activities was found to be in violation of its freedoms of assembly and association by the European Court of Human Rights in 2006.[3]
