The Democratic Party of Gdańsk (Polish: Partia Demokratyczna Gdańsku; German: Demokratische Partei von Danzig) is one of Gdańsk's seven major political parties; and, along with the Feminist Party, is one of the two dominant right parties of the Country. The Democrats' policies range from Center to Center-Left, and the party mostly focusses on social issues, such as gender equality and homosexual rights. This is partly due to a wide variety of differing Economic opinions between party members (ranging from Libertarian to Socialist), which makes it difficult for the Liberal Party to choose one individual Economic position.
Founded in 1918, the DPG was one of Gdańsk's very first parties (along with the Social Movement of Gdańsk, which is now defunct; and the Flame of Gdańsk), and they are the oldest active party in the country today. Since foundation, the Democrats have always been a dominant force in the country, and they have controlled the President's office for 25 years. Beginning with Sven Schuster's election in 1932, there have been 5 Democrat Presidents, last is the incumbent Eliasz Dąbrowski.
