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 political party in Mexico. The PRD originated from the Democratic Current, a political faction formed in 1986 from the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). 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.
