The party is a component of the centre-right bloc in Danish politics.[8][13][14] The party's platform is based upon economic liberalism, promotion of tax cuts and reduction of welfare programmes, and a critical, oppositional stance towards European integration.[6][15]

From November 2016 to June 2019, the Liberal Alliance was part of a three-party coalition government with the Liberal Party (Venstre) and the Conservative People's Party.
