The Democratic Nationhood Party (Indonesian: Partai Demokrasi Kebangsaan) is a political party in Indonesia. It was established in 2002 as the United Democratic Nationhood Party by a group of intellectuals including Ryaas Rasyid and Andi Mallarangeng, now President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's spokesman, who were disatissfied with the progress of the reform movement following the Fall of Suharto[1].

In the 2004 Indonesian legislative election, the party won 1.2% of the popular vote and 5 out of 550 seats. In the 2009 elections, the party stood as the Democratic Nationhood Party. The party set itself a target of 4 million votes in the election, in which it stood on a platform of creating a transparent, accountable and efficient administration[2][3]. In the 2009 legislative election, the party won 0.6 percent of the vote, less than the 2.5 percent electoral threshold, meaning it lost its seats in the People's Representative Council.[4][5]
