The Democrat Party ((タイ語:พรรคประชาธิปัตย์ ''Phak Prachathipat'')) is a Thai political party. The party, the oldest in Thailand, upholds a conservative, classically liberal and pro-market position.〔
The Democrat Party won the most seats in parliament in 1948, 1976, and 1992 - however, it has never won an outright parliamentary majority. The party's electoral support bases are Southern Thailand and Bangkok, although election results in Bangkok have fluctuated widely. Since 2004, Democrat candidates won three elections for the governorship of Bangkok. Since 2005, the Democrat Party's leader has been Abhisit Vejjajiva, incumbent opposition leader.

The Thai name of the party, ''Prachathipat'' (ประชาธิปัตย์), is a corruption of the word ''prachathipatai'' (ประชาธิปไตย) which means democracy, democratic or democrat. The party said it wanted the term to mean the people in whom democracy is vested.
