Gibraltar Liberal Party


Gibraltar Liberal Party

The Gibraltar Liberal Party are a political party in Gibraltar. The party was founded in 1991 and is led by Dr Joseph Garcia.

In line with most liberal parties, they describe their political philosophy as being based on notions of people deciding their own future, and are committed to Gibraltarian self-determination regarding constitutional arrangements. The party seeks city-state and dominion status for Gibraltar.

They formed an alliance with the Gibraltar Socialist Labour Party for the 2003 election to the House of Assembly. This alliance polled 39.7% of the vote at that election, returning 7 (out of 15) members, 2 of whom are Liberals. They again contested the 11 October 2007 Gibraltar Parliament elections as an alliance, with the Liberal Party candidates polling 13.65 % of the popular vote and winning 3 out of 17 seats. The GSLP/Liberal Alliance has formed the official opposition since 2003.

The Gibraltar Liberal Party is a member of the Liberal International.
