The Liberal Party (Khmer: គណបក្សសេរីនិយម), first known as the Constitutionalist Party, was a conservative, pro-French political party in Cambodia. The party was led by Prince Norodom Norindeth and was supported by the Khmer elites, the French, and members of the royal family.[1] The party advocated an evolutionary approach for independence as opposed to their more radical rivals, the Democrats.
