The National Liberal Party of Cuba (Spanish: Partido Liberal Nacional de Cuba, PLNC) was a political party of Cuba, founded in 2004 and dissolved in 2014.[1]

History[edit]

It was founded under the name Cuban Liberal Movement (Spanish: Movimiento Liberal Cubano) in 2004. In 2009, the party changed its name to the current one. That same year it denounced an "increase of the repression against its members".[2]

On February 20, 2014, it merged with the Democratic Solidarity Party, adopting the name Cuban Liberal Solidarity Party (Spanish: Partido Solidaridad Liberal Cubano, PSLC).[3]

Ideology[edit]

The National Liberal Party of Cuba was a party of liberal ideology, since it defended postulates like the nonintervention of the State and the absolute freedom in the economy.

The PLNC also struggled to end Cuba's socialist system, and respect for human rights. He was open to engaging in a dialogue with all the "pro-democratic" forces in Cuba, especially those of liberal descent.[1]
