Socialdemócratas de Gibraltar (Gibraltar Social Democrats, GSD, en castellano) es un partido político de centro-derecha del territorio británico de Gibraltar. Fundado en 1989, se mantuvo en el poder, bajo la dirección de Peter Caruana entre 1996 y 2011.

 

Socialdemócratas de Gibraltar fue fundado en 1989, poco después de que, tras las elecciones de 1988, la Asociación para el Progreso de los Derechos Civiles (AACR) perdiera el poder ante el Partido Socialista Laborista (GSLP) de Joe Bossano. Cuando finalmente Bossano se decidió a acabar con el contrabando y a implantar las medidas que había pedido el gobierno británico, se produjeron masivas manifestaciones, en julio de 1995, apoyando dichas medidas. Siempre bajo el liderazgo de Peter Caruana, el GSD volvió a ganar las elecciones de 2000, 2004 y 2007, en todas ellas ante la alianza entre el GSLP de Joe Bossano y el Partido Liberal. En 2011, sin embargo, un renovado liderazgo opositor, con Fabian Picardo a la cabeza, derrotó finalmente al GSD.

 

Líder: Daniel Feetham
