The Liberal Democratic Party (Serbian: Либерално-демократска партија, "Liberalno-demokratska partija") is a classical liberal political party in Serbia.

History

It was founded on 5 November, 2005 by a fraction of the Democratic Party after their leader, former Deputy Prime Minister Čedomir Jovanović had been expelled in a party purge. The party was represented in the Assembly of Serbia and Montenegro after Đorđe Đukić defected from the Democratic Party to the Liberal Democratic Party. The party also reached a coalition agreement for the 2007 parliamentary election with the Civic Alliance of Serbia, League of Vojvodina Social Democrats and the Social Democratic Union.

The Civic Alliance of Serbia merged into the LDP on April 7, 2007 after long announcements, increasing the number of LDP's seats in the parliament from 6 to 9.

Jovanovic has repeatedly offered Tadic a hand in forming a new government after the May 11 elections, providing the DS change its policy on Kosovo, in recognising Kosovo as an independent state.
