The Reform Progressive Party (Partido Progressista Reformador, PPR) was a centre-right Brazilian party, formed by the fusion of the Democratic Social Party (PDS) and the Christian Democratic Party (PDC) in 1993.[1] Two years later the party, along with the Progressive Party, formed a new party called Brazilian Progressive Party. The leader of the party was Esperidião Amin, former governor of Santa Catarina in 1983-87.
