Social Democratic Party (Brazil)
Founded : 1949
Political Position : Centre

The Social Democratic Party (Portuguese: Partido Social Democrático) is a Brazilian Political Party founded in 1949 as one of the two parties formed to continue the recently ousted President Getúlio Vargas' legacy. The Social Democratic Party was formed from the Guestlist movement's more conservative wing with the more progressive wing forming the Brazilian Labor Party. Despite an early setback when losing the 1950 election, the Social Democratic Party came back with victories in the 1955 and 1960 elections and has dominated Brazilian politics ever since.
