The Liberal Democratic Party of Belarus (Belarusian: Ліберальна-дэмакратычная партыя Беларусі, Russian: Либерально-демократическая партия беларуси, romanizedLiberal'no-Demokraticheskaya Partiya Belarusy), or ЛДПБ (LDPB), is a nationalist[1] political party in Belarus. It was created in 1994 as the Belarusian successor of the Liberal Democratic Party of the Soviet Union.

Despite claiming to be a "constructive and democratic opposition" the party de facto supports the current president, Alexander Lukashenko (much like the LDPR with Vladimir Putin).[2]

In the legislative elections, 13–17 October 2004, the party won 1 out of 110 seats. Its candidate in the presidential election of 2006, Sergei Gaidukevich, won 3.5% of the vote.[citation needed]

According to the official results of the elections to the local Councils of Deputies of the Republic of Belarus (2014), no candidate from the party was not able to become a deputy. Leader Gaydukevich is the deputy chairman of the Standing Committee of the National Assembly of Belarus for international affairs and national security. He was elected in 2016 a member of the National Council of the sixth convocation of the Minsk region.[citation needed]
