The Social Christian Reformist Party (PRSC) is a conservative, christian democratic, economic liberal and a populist party in the Dominican Republic formed by the union of the Partido Reformista (established in 1963 by Joaquín Balaguer who was, at the time, exiled in New York City) and the Partido Revolucionario Social Cristiano. Some of the PRSC's founders and leaders were originally business leaders and Roman Catholics who opposed the communist, democratic socialist and social democratic tendencies of Juan Bosch and José Francisco Peña Gómez, of the PRD and PLD. However, as is the case with most party politics in the Dominican Republic, the party remains pragmatically populist.
Founders of the original PRSC (former Partido Revolucionario Social Cristiano) were anti-trujillistas, among others: Alfonso Moreno Martinez, Mario Read Vittini, Yuyo D'Alessandro,Caonabo Javier Castillo, all of them returning to the Dominican Rep. from political exile. Years after this political party became Partido Refomista Social Cristiano.
In the 16 May 2006 legislative elections, the party formed together with its traditional opponent, the Dominican Revolutionary Party, and others the Grand National Alliance, that won only 82 out of 178 deputies and 10 out of 32 senators.
The Social Christian Reform Party itself won 23 seats in the chamber of deputies and 4 seats in the senate, taking a distant third place compared to the Dominican Liberation Party, which won the election, and the Dominican Revolutionary Party.
For the next Presidential Election(May 2008), the PRSC elected as their Candidate : Dominican Municipal League President (and elected but never serving Senator from Higuey) Amable Aristy Castro. He came in a distant third place with 5% of the vote. For the last legistative elections of May 2010, the party formed with the Dominican Liberation Party a partial alliance in almost all provinces and won 4 senators (1 alone and 3 within the alliance) and 8 deputies (3 alone and 5 within the alliance).
