The KDNP (Hungarian: Kereszténydemokrata Néppárt, German Christian Democratic People's Party ) is a Christian democratic party in Hungary. In the 1990s, she received 5 to 10 % of the vote. The KDNP was officially re- established in 1989, but this by referring to the old People's Democratic Party of the pre-socialist period. Thus, the founders of KDNP, T. and J.
