The Democratic Liberal Party ( , PD-L or PDL) is a populist, centre-right party in Romania. It was formed on 15 December 2007, when the Democratic Party ( , PD) merged with the Liberal Democratic Party. From 2004 to 2007, the Democratic Party was part of the governing Justice and Truth Alliance. Although he had to formally suspend his leadership of the party when elected president in 2004, the PLD is largely associated with Romanian president Traian Băsescu, who was previously leader of the Democratic Party as well as being a founding member. The PLD executive leadership has already stated publicly that it would support Băsescu's candidacy for Romania's next presidential elections. The party has also worked to ensure that its positions in the parliament reflect Băsescu's priorities.

In 2008, the Democratic Liberal Party won the most seats in the latest legislative election in both the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate, and formed a new government coalition with the Social Democratic Party.
