Description:
The People's Democratic Party (PDP) (Dzongkha: མི་སེར་དམངས་གཙོའི་ཚོགས་པ་; Wylie: mi-ser dmangs-gtsoi tshogs-pa) is one of the major political parties in Bhutan, formed on March 24, 2007. The founder president of this party is Sangay Ngedup, the former prime minister and agriculture minister of the Royal Government of Bhutan. The People's Democratic Party formally submitted its application for registration on August 6, 2007 and thus became the first political party in Bhutan to do so. On September 1, 2007 the Election Commission of Bhutan registered the party. The party presented candidates for the 2008 National Assembly election in all 47 constituencies. The party website appears to focus on democracy and human rights, suggesting that this party is centre-left, liberal, and social democratic, in outlook.

The party won only two of the National Assembly's 47 seats, and just under one third of the votes cast. The only other party that registered for the election, the Bhutan Peace and Prosperity Party, one gained 45 seats and just over two thirds of the votes. The People's Democratic Party's leader, Sangay Ngedup, failed to win the seat in his own constituency., France 24, March 24, 2008
