Slide1Developments in the Liberal Party since 2007by Maria Carmen Zamora-Apsay
Slide2The Liberal Party The Liberal Party (LP) was founded on 19 January 1946 by Manuel Roxas, the first President of the Third Philippine Republic. The second oldest Political Party in the Philippines, the Liberal Party (LP) is considered an institution of Philippines sociopolitical life. Formed after World War II by Pres. Manuel A. Roxas, it has consistently provided the country with strong leadership, especially in times of crisis. It is a Party whose history is filled with sacrifice; its members and leaders have been known to give their very lives just to see Freedom and Liberty reign in the Philippines. During moments of moral ambiguity in Philippine Politics, government officials and the media always look towards where the LP will go as an indication on what may be the right decision or stand on an issue.
