Democratic Liberal Party of Armenia or in abbreviation ADLA (Armenian: Հայաստանի Ռամկավար Ազատական Կուսակցություն (ՀՌԱԿ)), is an Armenian political party established in Armenia after the declaration of independence in 1991. The party was officially registered in July 1991 and took part in the Armenian Parliamentary elections held on 25 May 2003 and brought 2.9% of the popular vote, but short of the minimum 5% threshold to be represented in the Parliament. The party didn't take part in the elections on 12 May 2007. The chairman of the Democratic Liberal Party of Armenia was Harutyun Mirzakhanian.

Presently the party is presided by Harutiun Arakelian. In 2008 three smaller parties in Armenia dissolved into the Democratic Liberal Party of Armenia, namely:

  • National Rebirth
  • Dashink
  • Liberal Progressive Parties

The Democratic Liberal Party of Armenia (ADLA) is not to be confused with the historical Armenian Democratic Liberal Party (ADL) (Armenian: Ռամկավար Ազատական Կուսակցություն (ՌԱԿ) ) also known as the Ramgavar Party, which is a powerful long-standing Armenian party in the Armenian diaspora established in 1885 by Mekertich Portukalian under the name Armenakan Party (Armenian: Արմենական կուսակցություն) and later named Democratic Liberal Party (ADL), although there may be certain alliances between the two parties.
