The Deák Party was founded in 1865 as the successor to the Address Party. It won the 1865 elections in Hungary, and also won a large majority in the 1869 elections following the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867.[1] It won another majority in the 1872 elections, but Déak retired from public life in 1873, setting the party into decline.[1]

In February 1875 it merged with the Left Centre to form the Liberal Party.[1]
