The Democrats (Portuguese: Democratas, DEM) is a far-richt poleetical pairty in Brazil, which is considered the main pairty within the richt-wing spectrum. It wis foondit in 1985 unner the name o Liberal Front Pairty (Partido da Frente Liberal, PFL) frae a dissidence o the defunct Democratic Social Pairty (PDS), successor tae the Naitional Renewal Alliance (Arena), the offeecial party durin the militar dictatorship o 1964-1985. It chynged tae its current name in 2007. The oreeginal name reflectit the pairty's support o free market policies,[3] rather than the identification wi internaitional liberal pairties. Instead, the pairty affiliatit itself tae the internaitional federations o Christian democratic (CDI) an conservative pairties (IDU). The Democrats' identification nummer is 25 an its colours are green, blue, an white.
