The Social Democratic Party was a center-left political party in Luthori that shaped its political life from 4590 until 4693.
The party makes an immediate breakthrough right after its creation. It decides to not enter in a government coalition but to provide support for the CPL-White Rose coalition.
The party removes its support from 4593, over a disagreement in the education budget. An early election is called shortly after this.
In late July of 4621 the NDA splits into two different parties, the center-right creates the Imperial Citizens Party and the center-left revives their old Social Democratic Party.
The success of the party in the 4622 election is behind the expectations of the party militants.
In 4629, many party officials defect, as the party votes for a bill restricting civil liberties and making adultery punishable of death.
In 4641, the party joins the Hopkins I Cabinet.
After the next election, in 4644, the party is the only party that is part of the cabinet to gain votes. It also makes its best score since its revival and becomes the third party.
This success is short-lived since the party loses a very large part of its seats in the 4645 election.
Just after this, the party leader David Owens III resigns, Brittany Box is elected as the new party leader. The party also decides to stay in the opposition.
In 4651, the SDP loses 1 seat.
In 4653, the party wins 5 seats after a political crisis partially provoked by the inaction of the party.
Providing confidence and supply to Pope William II Cabinet Edit
In 4655, after the fall of the Jackson-Wright Cabinet, the party loses 18 seats and gains 8.67 % of the votes.
The party decides to provide support to the Pope William's Cabinet II composed only with the far-right HLC. This lead to lots of critics about the SDP turning to the far-right. The party endorsed the HLC candidate William II for the next imperator election
In opposition Edit
In 4660, the party gains 15 seats but does not enter in a government since other parties accused the SDP of being the "puppet-party" of the far-right HLC.
The party stays stable and loses one seat. However, it becomes the seventh party in Luthori.
In 4666 Brittany Box steps down, while Harold Lion becomes the new leader of the SDP in 4667. The MP announces that his party is willing to take part in a coalition government.
The party stays stable and doesn't gain any seats after the election. It stays in the opposition.
In 4681, the SDP gains its first ever Prime Minister, Harold Lion.

The SDP is accused of approving the HLC fascist policies by providing support to an HLC-led government or by voting no on bills that would overthrow the HLC reforms.
