The National Democratic Hungarian-Szekler Party (Romanian: Partidul Național-Democrat Maghiar-Secuiesc, PNDMS) was a political party in Romania.


The party began as a political group in early 1919 led by Béla Maurer, and started publishing a daily newspaper Új Világ on 27 April.[1]

In the 1919 elections held between 4 and 8 November, the group won eight seats in the Chamber of Deputies,[2] and four in the Senate.[1] The party itself was officially formed on 27 November in a meeting held at the Grand Hotel in Bucharest, with Lajos Dániel becoming party president.[3] However, it did not contest any further elections.[4]
