The Liberal Democratic Party was a Cambodian political party founded in 1992 by former Khmer People's National Liberation Armed Forces commander Sak Sutsakhan.[1] The party was created after infighting between Sutsakhan and Son Sann following the Paris Peace Accords of 1991 led Sutsakhan to split from the Khmer People's National Liberation Front (KPNLF), an anti-communist group originally started by Son Sann.

The Liberal Democratic Party won 62,698 votes (1.6%) in the 1993 national election.[2]
