The National Democratic Party was active in Northern Ireland in the 1960s. A National Political Front was founded in 1964 with the aim of developing policy for the Nationalist Party, but was unsuccessful in influencing Nationalist Party candidates. They briefly cooperated with the Republican Labour Party.
In 1965 the National Party was formed with the aim of organising supporters of a united Ireland in urban areas, while deliberately not organising in areas with a Nationalist Party MP. Later in 1965 they were renamed the National Democratic Party and continued to put pressure on the Nationalist Party.
The party was dissolved in 1970 with a resolution that all members should join the newly formed SDLP, to which many members had already defected.
