The Libertarian Party (Dutch: Libertarische Partij, LP) is a Dutch political party. It was founded in 1993. She hopes to develop "a free world, a world in which no one is forced to sacrifice his or her life and property for the benefit of others". Its founder and chairman is Toine Manders, who works for the Haags Juristen College.
In 2003 the board members Laura Buit, Arjan van Eersel, David Jessurun and Niek Holtzappel, left the party because of a dispute about the party's goals. Their intention was to found a new party, which has resulted in "De Liberalen", a short-lived initiative. David Jessurun later joined "De Vrijheidslijst" but is currently not active politically.
