The People's Party – Dan Diaconescu (Romanian: Partidul Poporului – Dan Diaconescu; abbreviated PP-DD) is a populist Romanian political party created in 2011 by television presenter Dan Diaconescu.


The People's Party – Dan Diaconescu was founded in 2011 by Romanian TV presenter Dan Diaconescu. The first congress of the party was held in January 2012, when the party was officially constituted. At the local election of 2012, PP-DD was situated on the third place, on the party's ticket being elected 31 mayors, 3,126 local councilors and 134 county councilors. After the election, the party became the fourth largest political force in Romania, after the Social Democrats, the National Liberals and the Democratic Liberals. At the 2012 parliamentary election, PP-DD won third place, successfully entering Parliament with 21 senators and 47 deputies elected on the party's lists. By June 2013 however, the PP-DD became heavily affected by party switching, losing 2 senators and 16 deputies, including its group leaders in both chambers.[3]


The ideology of the PP-DD expressed nationalist and socialist points of view. The party supports progressive measures, like higher retirement pensions and salaries, and a lower VAT. The party also supports the collectivisation of agriculture, the founding of a People's Tribunal, the foundation of state companies with directly elected leadership.
