|People's Democratic Party|
|Party Leader||Sebastien Alexandre|
The PDP describes itself as a "progressive centre-left party that is dedicated to ensuring democracy and protecting the rights of the people". It is the only active party of the left within Alexandria. It seeks to represent everyone who has liberal and progressive beliefs.
The party was founded by Nicholas Bertrand, who assumed leadership after Douay's departure. The current leader, Pete James, is working on new policies. At the moment, the PDP has one MP in the Imperial Parliament, and is indeending to fight for 1-2 of the seats about to go up for by-election. Bertrand had expressed hopes that the PDP would bring Alexandria into a new era of 2 party democracy. He failed in achiving this goal, but James has expressed similar hopes, leading to belief that their still may be hope for multi party politics in Alexandria.
