The Lebanese Democratic Party is officially secular and has members from all Lebanese sects, but most of its support comes from the Druze, who support the Arslan family. It is part of the March 8 Alliance.

The party was represented in the Lebanese parliament in 2000 and in 2009. In the General elections of 2009, Talal Arslan won a seat in the Parliament representing the Aley district, and Fadi Awar the one representing the Baabda district.[1]
