GER: Die Bürgerlich-Demokratische Partei Schweiz (BDP Schweiz) ist eine politische Partei in der Schweiz, die auf nationaler Ebene am 1. November 2008 in der Glarner Landesbibliothek als Abspaltung der Schweizerischen Volkspartei (SVP) gegründet wurde.
ENG: The Conservative Democratic Party of Switzerland is a conservative political party in Switzerland. The BDP has one member of the Federal Council, five of the National Council, and one of the Council of States.
It was founded as a moderate splinter group from the national conservative Swiss People's Party (SVP), and was founded as a political party on the federal level on 1 November 2008. It is led by Martin Landolt, and has one Federal Councillor, Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf, whose election in defiance of the SVP incumbent Christoph Blocher led to the creation of the party. It comprises most of the SVP's old centrist-agrarian wing, which had been overshadowed in recent years by its nationalist-activist wing.
The party's name in English comes from "bourgeois," the traditional European term for a centre-right party.
