Liberal Party of Montenegro

Liberal Party of Montenegro (Montenegrin: Либерална партија Црне Горе, Liberalna partija Crne Gore, LP) is a minor conservative liberal[3] and ethnic nationalist political party in Montenegro, an associate member of ALDE and a full member of the Liberal International. The party advocated liberalism and the bringing down of Milo Đukanović's rule, saw it as authoritarian and undemocratic. It had continued the fight against what it saw as the DPS' authoritarianism that the Liberal Alliance of Montenegro pursued since its foundation in 1990. However, the party changed its discourse and became a junior coalition partner of DPS both on local and national level since 2006, when Đukanović's regime declared independence of Montenegro.
