The Democrat Party (พรรคประชาธิปัตย์ Phak Prachathipat) is a Thai political party. The party, the oldest in Thailand, upholds a conservatively and classically liberal pro-market position.[1][2]

The Democrat Party won the most seats in parliament in 1948, 1976, and 1992 - however, it has never won an outright parliamentary majority.
