Liberal Party is the name of dozens of political parties around the world. It usually designates a party that is ideologically liberal, meaning that they advocate human rights and civil liberties, and perhaps left wing meaning that they belive in the redistribution of wealth from rich to poor. There are however some Liberal Parties which are actually more conservative in nature than their opponents, or whose views are right wing, libertarian, or difficult to categorise.
