Libertarian Movement Party

Published 22nd January, 2014

The Libertarian Movement Party or PML was founded in 1995. It stood originally on a platform of anti-inflation measures, reducing the size of the state and putting more police on the beat, all of which are usually seen as Centre-right policies. It also believes in Classical liberalism which is also seen as a Centre-right stance, but it is a member of Liberal International which would place it as centre-left.

The party won one seat in the 1998 general election and six seats in the 2002 and 2006 elections. In 2010 the PML won nine of the 57 seats in the National Assembly.

The Libertarian Movement Party is a member of the Liberal International (LI).
