Democratic Force (France)
Democratic Force was a French centrist political party founded in 1995 by the merger between the centrist components of the Union for French Democracy (Union pour la démocratie française or UDF): the Christian-democratic Centre of Social Democrats and the Social Democratic Party.
It disappeared in 1998, when the UDF confederation became a unified centrist political party. The former leader of Democratic Force, François Bayrou, became president of this party.
