Cambio Democratico (Democratic Change) is a political party in Gran Verionia. It was established as the main opposition party of Los Liberados. In 1683, it contested nation-wide in most states of Gran Verionia. It was succesful in the general election of 1683 where it emerged as the largest opposition party in the Congress of the Confederated States of Gran Verionia. In the by-election of 1684 in the Northern states, Cambio Democratico was the largest party.

History

The party was formed in 1672 in the run up to the 1673 elections for the Liberadosan unicameral parliament, the Asamblea Nacional de la República. Leader is Paula Ferraro, who previously led the Forward movement. The party promotes liberal values, and fights for more democracy in Los Liberados thereby directly going against the governing Junta. Another major issue is the rights of the Timaro people in the South of the country.

The party did well in the 1673 elections, where they won 40 seats, and became the main force of opposition against the government of President Jacobo Castrigo.

Following the assumption of the Presidency by Rodrigo Calderón, Cambio Democratico adopted economic liberalism in direct response to the policy of economia liberada. As a result, many business leaders, including Iron Company officials, shifted from the PLN and supported Ferraro's movement. Cambio Democratico also received financial support from foreign donors.

Cambio Democratico became a nation-wide party that participated in the 1683 general election in all Martinophone states. The party is the main member of the Group for Democracy, a progressive opposition bloc within the Congress.
