DescriptionCenter-right party formed as the Christen-Democratisch Appèl (CDA) by coalition created in 1977 of the Catholic People's Party, the Anti-Revolutionary Party and the Christian Historical Union.

A popular partner in coalition governments, the party's legislative presence nonetheless fell by half after the 2010 general election, and continued to decline to date; although, a revival of sorts is in the air since Finance Minister (since October 26, 2017) Wopke Hoeksta was unanimously elected CDA leader on December 11, 2020, with polls showing the CDA gaining two to three seats and third place ahead of elections planned for March 17, 2020.

Party is chaired by Rutger Ploum.
