Many countries and subnational political entities have Libertarian parties. Although these parties may describe themselves as libertarian, they follow classical liberalism and their ideologies differ considerably, and not all of them support all elements of libertarianism. Most of these political parties are right-libertarians, or are right-leaning for favouring classical liberalism and economic liberalism, as left-libertarians take a different approach, generally opposing electoral politics and political parties themselves; exceptions are the Libertarian Left in Chile.
