The Direct Democracy Party of New Zealand is a New Zealand political party which promotes greater participation by the people in the decision making of government. The party's leader is Kelvyn Alp.

It is one of the few parties in New Zealand that openly challenges the current monetary system and actively promotes solutions to address matters of irredeemable debt.[1] It aims to establish a system of binding referendums similar to that used by Switzerland for all major decisions[2] and advocates for a New Zealand Constitution to protect and enshrine the rights and freedoms of the people.[3]

In 2005 the Direct Democracy Party gained official registration as a political party.[4] They fielded a 32 member party list in the 2005 elections, but won only 782 votes (or 0.03% of the total vote), failing to get any MPs into parliament.[5]

The party did not apply for broadcasting funding in 2008, [6] nor did it submit a party list. No votes were recorded in the official results for the party vote in that year's election.[7]

The party's registration was cancelled at its own request on 30 june 2009.[8]
