The Democratic Coalition or DK was founded on 22nd October 2011 by former Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány. It started off as a group within the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) in 2010 before splitting off. The party describes itself as Centre-left and believes in Social liberalism and Progressivism.
Subsequent to the split with the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP), Ferenc Gyurcsány managed to persuade nine other parliamentarians to join his new party.
On 14th January 2014 the Democratic Coalition agreed to be part of a joint list called Unity and which will be led by the MSZP.
