The African Democratic Rally (French: Rassemblement Démocratique Africain, commonly known as the RDA) was a political party in French West Africa and French Equatorial Africa, led by Félix Houphouët-Boigny. Founded in Bamako in 1946, the RDA quickly became one of the most important forces for independence in the region. Initially a Pan-Africanist movement, the RDA ceased to function as a Pan-African party as Houphouët-Boigny turned hostile towards the idea of African federalism. Splinter groups of the RDA remain active in the politics of Guinea, Côte d'Ivoire, Chad, Niger, Senegal, and Burkina Faso.
