"Liberal Party" is the name of some like-named political parties in a number of countries:
- The British Liberal Party was powerful from the 1860s to 1920, then declined. It evolved from the Whig Party. Most members merged with Social Democratic Party (SDP) to form the Liberal Democrats in 1988.
- The Liberal Party of Australia, founded in 1944. There was also an earlier Liberal Party (Australia) during the second decade of the 20th century.
- The Liberal Party of Bulgaria, founded in 1897.
- The Liberal Party of Canada is a leftist political party.
- The Liberal Party of Honduras, founded in 1891.
- The Liberal Party of East Timor, founded in 2001.
- The Liberal Party of Philippines, founded in 1946.
- The Liberal Party of Switzerland, founded in 1913.
- The Democratic Party in the United States is now often referred to as "The Liberal Party".
Worldwide, although some "liberal" parties claim to be "pro-business" or "pro-small business" they invariably adopt policies that are anti-corporation, anti-large business and increase corporate taxation to provide more social welfare "benefits", typical of liberals in the U.S.
