The Union Democratic Party (Burmese: ပြည်ထောင်စုဒီမိုကရေစီပါတီ, abbreviated UDP) is a Burmese political party founded in 2008. It was formally registered in May 2010, with headquarters in Bahan Township, Yangon.[1] UDP is contesting the 2010 general election in Burma. UDP's chairman is Thein Htay, after Phyo Min Thein resigned, citing concerns over the election's fairness.[2] The Union Democratic Party is a merger of the Public Democracy Party, founded by Phyo Min Thein, and the Union Democracy Alliance Organisation, founded by Shan political leader Shwe Ohn.
