DescriptionCenter-left successor to the ruling Communist National Salvation Front (FSN), a temporary organ of state power resulting from the 1989 Romanian revolution, whose president was Ion Iliescu. The FSN was on the verge of disintegration after it declared an end to the one-party state system on December 27, 1989. A large segment of the party broke off to form the Democratic Front of National Salvation (FDSN) on June 28, 1992, later changing its name to the Party of Social Democracy in Romania (PDSR) after it merged with the Republican Party, the Social Solidarity Party and the Cooperative Party on July 10, 1993. After winning the presidential elections in 2000 under its leader Adrian Năstase, the PDSR settled on the present-day Social Democratic Party (Partidul Social Democrat, PSD) upon absorption of the smaller Romanian Social Democratic Party on January 16, 2001. The new party then claimed to be center-left, holding a social democratic doctrine related to contemporary European social democracy. Party has become one of two dominant parties in Romania since the fall of Communism. The PSD has been led by the former President of the Chamber of Deputies (May 27, 2019 – December 18, 2020), Marcel Ciolacu, since November 27, 2019.
