P.C.D.: Partido da Convergência Democrática (Democratic Convergence Party), founded and led by Victor Mandinga, and controlling the newspaper Bagueira. This party is not listed among the candidates of either the 2004 nor the 2008 elections. I found mentions to this party in:
According to “A
Transição Democrática na Guiné-Bissau :
Um Parto Dificil” article by Carlos Cardoso in
Lusotopie 1995: 259, this party was part of the politically
heterogenous Unido coalition, created
in November 1992, along with FLING,
P.D.P., and P.R.S.

The flag of P.C.D. is shown in both ballot papers
reported (#6 in Bissau-28 and #4 in Bissau-29). It is a light blue
flag with red letter reading "PDC" in serif capitals set widely spaced,
with the party emblem on the fly, everything taking up the horizontal
middle of the flag (maybe slightly set to the bottom). The flag ratio is
roughly 5:7 as most others’ in the ballot papers are. The emblem is
a yellow bee in front view with outstreched wings, drawn in zoologically
realistic style, with black lining.
