The New Democratic Front is a progressive political party in Botswana without parliamentary representation. Led by Dick Bayford, it split away from the Botswana National Front in 2003. It won 0.78% of the popular votes at the elections that followed. After its poor performance in the 2004 general elections, the party joined forces with Botswana's third largest party, the Botswana Congress Party.
