The Beloved Fatherland Party or PPQ was founded in 2002. It describes itself as Centre-right and believes in Conservatism, Liberal conservatism, Christian democracy and Paraguayan nationalism.
The party did remarkably well in the 2003 general election when it won seven seats in the 45 seat Senate and ten seats in the 80 seat Chamber of Deputies. Its presidential candidate Pedro Fadul won 21.9% of the vote and came third.
In 2008 they dropped back, winning just four seats in the Senate and three seats in the Chamber of Deputies. Pedro Fadul stood again as the party’s presidential candidate but this time managed just 2.5% of the vote and came fourth.
