Democratic Action (Spanish: Acción Democrática, AD) is a Venezuelan social democratic political party established in 1941.
The party and its antecedents played an important role in the early years of Venezuelan democracy and led the government during Venezuela's first democratic period (1945–1948). After an intervening decade of dictatorship (1948–1958) saw AD excluded from power, four presidents came from Acción Democrática from the 1960s to the 1990s during the two-party system with Copei. By the end of the 1990s, the party's credibility was almost nonexistent, mostly because of the corruption and poverty that Venezuelans experienced during the last two full-term administrations of the party's time in power, namely those of Jaime Lusinchi (1984–1989) and Carlos Andrés Pérez (1989–1993). The latter president was impeached for corruption in 1993 and spent several years in prison as a result.
