The Party of Sardinians (Italian: Partito dei Sardi, PdS) is a social-democratic, separatist[2] political party in Sardinia.

History

In July 2012 Franciscu Sedda and Ornella Demuru, husband and wife,[3] left Project Republic of Sardinia (ProgReS), a party they were instrumental to launch, over disagreements with the new party leadership and the rise of Michela Murgia, a writer who was headed to become the party's candidate in the 2014 regional election.[4][5]

In July 2013 Sedda launched the PdS along with Paolo Maninchedda, a splinter from the Sardinian Action Party (PSd'Az). At the first party congress Sedda declared: "Let's start to think and act as a state and a nation, and self-determination will come, maybe not today, but much sooner than we think". The PdS, which long sought an alliance with the centre-left led by the Democratic Party (PD),[6] was welcomed in the coalition, along with the Red Moors and Independence Republic of Sardinia.

In the regional election, which took place in February 2014, the party won 2.7% of the vote and two regional councillors.[7] In December 2017 Sedda and Maninchedda exchanged leadership roles: the former, who used to be secretary, became president, while the latter, who used to be president, became secretary.[8]
