The Democratic Watan Party of Afghanistan (Persian: حزب "وطن" دموکراتیک افغانستان, Persian in Latin alphabeth Hezb-e Watan Demokratik-e Afghanistan) is a political party in Afghanistan. It emerged out of the Parcham faction of the People's Democratic Party of Afghanistan. It took the name Watan Party (Homeland Party) in 1990.

"Watan Party" (The Homeland Party - Afghanistan) was the new name for the People's Democratic Party of Afghanistan. In the Second Congress, 1990 (18th plenuum), the party changed its manifesto, its theoretical approach and adopted the name "Watan Party". The new aims and objectives were mainly based on the principles of the National Reconciliation, National Unity, reconstruction, etc.
