Encyclopedia > Liberal Party (Philippines)

The Liberal Party (Filipino: Partido Liberal) is a liberal party in the Philippines, founded in 1945 by a breakaway from the Nacionalista Party. As such it is the second-oldest political party in the Philippines in terms of establishment, and the oldest active politcal party in the Philippines. The party has been led by people like Manuel Roxas, Elpidio Quirino, Diosdado Macapagal and Benigno Aquino, Jr.. It occupies four seats in the Senate of the Philippines including former Senate President Franklin Drilon of Iloilo, Majority Floor leader Francis Pangilinan of Metro Manila (won in 2001) and former Armed Forces Chief General and two-time Senator Rodolfo Biazon of Metro Manila and former Trade Secretary Manuel "Mar" Roxas II of Capiz (won in 2004 elections). There are no results available of the last elections for the House of Representatives, but according to the website of the House, the party holds 34 out of 235 seats (state of the parties, June 2005). The party was, at the time of the 2004 elections, a member of the Koalisyon ng Katapatan at Karanasan sa Kinabukasan (K-4, Coalition of Truth and Experience for Tomorrow), the coalition that supported president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who won the 2004 presidential elections.

In a gathering attended by President Macapagal-Arroyo on March 2, 2006, the Atienza faction elected Defensor as party chairman and Atienza the party president.

The Drilon faction called the gathering illegal and called for the removal of Atienza as party chair. Atienza was replaced by Pangilinan. Both parties filed their application for recognition before the Commission on Elections and the Comelec ruled that the Atienza election was illegal while recognizing Drilon's term as expired. The commission ordered an election of party officials on November 2006. The Drilon faction filed for a temporary restraining order before the Supreme Court.

Member Parties - Liberal Party - Philippines (0 words)
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.
