People's Monarchist Party Portugal

The People's Monarchist Party (Portuguese: Partido Popular Monárquico, pronounced [p'tidu pupu'la? mu'na?kiku]) is a political party in Portugal. It was founded in 1974[6] by various groups opposing the Estado Novo, in the context of the Carnation Revolution. Currently it is a small monarchist party with little political support. It is known that the claimant to the Portuguese throne, Dom Duarte Pio, Duke of Braganza, does not support this party officially, especially during the period of its leadership by Nuno da Câmara Pereira, a known supporter of the Duke of Loulé's claim to the throne.

The party had, until 2009, two representatives in the Assembly of the Republic, elected on the lists of the Social Democratic Party, following an agreement with the latter party's leader, Pedro Santana Lopes. In 2009, under the leadership of Câmara Pereira, the party decided to run in the elections of that year on its own, gaining no seats.

The party had not been elected on its own since the dissolution of the Democratic Alliance, of which it was a part, and seldom reached 0.5% of votes. Nevertheless, under the leadership of Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles (who has since retired from the party), the party was a pioneer in introducing ecological concerns into Portuguese politics.[]

The People's Monarchist Party is a member of the International Monarchist Conference and the European Christian Political Movement.
