The Arab Liberal Federation (ALF; Arabic: الأتحاد الليبرالي العربي‎‎) is a network of liberal political parties, organisations and activists from Arab countries. It was formed in 2008 in Cairo under the name of Network of Arab Liberals (NAL). Wael Nawara of the Egyptian El-Ghad Party was elected its first president. The network was renamed The Arab Alliance for Freedom and Democracy in 2011, reacting to the negative connotations that the term 'liberal' has in some Arab countries.[1] and In March 2016 the Alliance was renamed to its current name using the term 'Liberal' as ideological identification.

The network is associated with the Liberal International. It receives support from the European ALDE Party and the German Friedrich Naumann Foundation and the VVD of Netherlands .

on March 2016, ALF has met in the Tunisian capital, Tunis where ALF elected a new leadership. Dr. Mahmoud Alaily of FEP (Egypt) is the new ALF President, while Mohamed Ouzzine of MP (Morocco) is the new Secretary General.[2]
