Conservative Party (Romania)

The Conservative Party (Romanian: Partidul Conservator, PC) was a conservative[2] political party in Romania. Founded in 1991, approximately two years after the fall of Communism in Romania, originally under the name Romanian Humanist Party (Romanian: Partidul Umanist Român, PUR). From 2005 until 3 December 2006,[4] the party was a junior member of the Government of Romania. The party adopted the name Conservative Party on 7 May 2005. Subsequently, a little bit more than a decade after, more specifically in June 2015, it merged with the Liberal Reformist Party (PLR) to form the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE).

It claimed the heritage of the historical Romanian Conservative Party, one of the two main political forces in Romania before the First World War. There was no direct, uninterrupted link between the two partiesthe historical Conservative Party was dissolved after World War Ibut the modern party sustained and embraced the values of the historical one.
