The Dignity and Truth Platform Party (Romanian: Partidul Platforma Demnitate și Adevăr, PPDA) is a centre-right political party in Moldova led by Andrei Năstase, a lawyer and former prosecutor. It was established in December 2015 in the context of the long-term anti-government demonstrations. The party calls for far-reaching change in the political establishment. The Party became an Observer Member of the European People's Party in 2017.


On February 24th, 2015, an initial group that consisted of 14 people, including journalists, analysts, and social activists, announced the creation of a movement they called the Dignity and Truth Platform. The stated purpose of this movement was to serve as a government watchdog. The Platform has organized meetings in which people have expressed their dissatisfaction with the government. Almost one year after the protests, the leaders of the Platform decided to create a new political party.


The party leadership has expressed opposition to what they characterized as the "oligarchic mafia government" of Vladimir Plahotniuc. They support early elections to form a pro-EU reformist government.[5]
