The Conservative Party of Georgia (Georgian: საქართველოს კონსერვატიული პარტია, Sak’art’velos konservatiuli partia, SKP) is a centre-right and nationalist political party, active in Georgia since 2001.[1][2][3]

Under its acting chairman Zviad Dzidziguri, the party was allied with Mikheil Saakashvili’s United National Movement until May 2004 when it switched into opposition, and with the Republican Party of Georgia formed the Democratic Front faction.

They joined other opposition parties in the 2007 anti-government demonstrations and supported a joint opposition candidate Levan Gachechiladze in the early 2008 presidential election.

The party is now part of the governing Georgian Dream alliance that won the 2012 election against United National Movement.

The party joined the Alliance of European Conservatives and Reformists on 1 November 2014.[4]
