The Uzbekistan Liberal Democratic Party (Uzbek: O'zbekiston Liberal Demokratik Partiyasi, O'zlidep) is a political party in Uzbekistan. During the 2004-2005 legislative election, the party won 41 out of 120 seats, and in the Uzbekistani parliamentary election, 2009–2010, it won 55 out of 150.
The party said on 4 October 2007 that it intended to nominate President Islam Karimov as its candidate in the 2007 presidential election, although many considered Karimov to be legally ineligible to run for another term. On 6 November, Karimov was unanimously chosen as the Liberal Democratic Party's presidential candidate at a party convention in Tashkent, and Karimov accepted the nomination.
