The Democratic Solidarity Party (Partido Solidaridad Democrática) is a political liberal party in Cuba. Although changes to the Cuban constitution in 1992 decriminalized the right to form political parties other than the Communist Party of Cuba, these parties are not permitted to campaign or engage in any public political activities on the island. The Democratic Solidarity party describes itself as "an organization from within Cuba promoting democracy and the respect for human rights by the peaceful route." The President of the party is Fernando Sánchez López. The party is a full member of Liberal International.

It merged with the National Liberal Party of Cuba in February 2014 to form the Cuban Liberal Solidarity Party (Spanish: Partido Solidaridad Liberal Cubano, PSLC).[1]
