The Liberal Party of Montenegro (Montenegrin: Либерална Партија Црне Горе, Liberalna Partija Crne Gore, LPCG) is an opposition centre-left liberal political party in Montenegro. The party advocates liberalism and the bringing down of Milo Đukanović's rule, seeing it as authoritarian and undemocratic. It has continued the fight against what it sees as the Democratic Party of Socialists's authoritarianism that the Liberal Alliance in Montenegro purchased for the past 17 years.

It is anti-war and committed to the creation and expression of political will, as well supporting the political activity of citizens who desire to constitute and develop the Republic of Montenegro as a democratic and independent state. The aims of LPM are the fulfillment of ideals of free individuals; free people; liberal democracy, private property; free market and social justice, through action based on the principles and traditions of European liberal democracy.

At the last legislative elections in Montenegro, in March 2009, the Liberal Party was a part of coalition with Democratic Centre, but they failed to gain parliamentary status.

History

The Liberal Party of Montenegro was founded on 28 October 2004 in Podgorica. It emerged from a faction of Liberal Alliance of Montenegro (LSCG), after a split between LSCG's leaders Miodrag Živković and Slavko Perović. On 24 March 2005 the Liberal Alliance of Montenegro decided to freeze its political activities, leaving LP as de facto only liberal party in Montenegro.

In 2006 Montenegrin independence referendum, the LPM aligned itself with pro-independence movement, consisting of Democratic Party of Socialists of Montenegro, Social Democratic Party of Montenegro and parties representing ethnic minorities, in spite of the LPM's previous harsh criticism of the ruling DPS. It contributed to renewal of Montenegro's statehood, which was one of party's main goals.
