The Liberal Democratic Party (French: Parti libéral démocrate, PLD) is a classical liberal political party in France. It was founded in 2008 by a split in the Liberal Alternative. It seeks to fulfil the same role as the former Liberal Democracy, uniting supporters of Alain Madelin.[1][2]

In the 2010 regional elections, the PLD were allied to Liberal Alternative and the Centrist Alliance. In the 2012 presidential election, the PLD didn't run its own candidate, but endorsed François Bayrou in the first round and Nicolas Sarkozy in the second round. In the 2012 legislative election, the party ran some of its own candidates, but also endorsed a number of Miscellaneous right, Union for a Popular Movement, Centrist Alliance, and Democratic Movement candidates.[3]
