The Democratic Party , abbreviated to DP, is the major liberal political party in Luxembourg. One of the three major parties, the DP sits on the centre-right, holding moderate market liberal views combined with a strong emphasis on civil liberties, human rights, and internationalism.
Founded in 1955, the party is currently led by Xavier Bettel, who has been the Prime Minister of Luxembourg since 2013, leading the Bettel-Schneider government in coalition with the Luxembourg Socialist Workers' Party and The Greens. It is the joint second-largest party in the Chamber of Deputies, with thirteen seats out of sixty, having won 18% of the vote at the 2013 general election, and has one seat in the European Parliament out of six. The party's stronghold is around Luxembourg City; it has provided the city's Mayor since 1970.
