The Democratic Renewal Movement (or Tajaddod) is a reformist, social liberal, secular political party in Lebanon.

The Democratic Renewal was founded in 2001 by a group of 50 Lebanese political figures, intellectuals and businessmen. It was headed by Nassib Lahoud (1944-2012), former Presidential aspirant, deputy of the Metn region from 1991 until 2005.[1] After Nassib Lahoud's death on 2 February 2012, DRM's vice-president, former MP Camille Ziade, became the acting president, a post he would retain until July 2013. On 19 July 2013, Ziade was elected president of the Movement.

The Democratic Renewal has had four members in the Parliament, Nadim Salem of Jezzine in South Lebanon (1972-2000), Nassib Lahoud of Metn in Mount Lebanon (1991-2005), Camille Ziade of Kesrwan in Mount Lebanon (1992-2000), and Misbah Ahdab of Tripoli in North Lebanon (1996-2009).[2]
