Party of the Democratic Revolution

The Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD, Spanish: Partido de la Revolución Democrática, pronounced [paɾˈtido de la reboluˈsjon demoˈkɾatika]) is a social democratic[10] political party in Mexico.[11] The PRD originated from the Democratic Current, a political faction formed in 1986 from the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI).[12] The PRD was formed after the contested general election in 1988, which the PRD's immediate predecessor, the National Democratic Front, believed was rigged by the PRI. This sparked a movement away from the PRI's authoritarian rule.[13]
