 Member Parties - Liberal Party - Philippines
Since 1946 when it was founded until the advent of martial law in 1972, the Liberal Party (LP) was one of the Philippines’ two major parties, holding power for much of the crucial post-WW II economic reconstruction.
The party, particularly its stalwart in the senate, were crucial in the abrogation in 1991 of the RP-US Military Bases agreement that marked the closure of the biggest military installations outside the US thus ending more than four centuries of foreign military presence in the country.
The Party is also committed to fair and adequate wages and conditions for workers, and to the right to collective bargaining.
