The Serbian Liberal Party (Serbian: Српска либерална странка / Srpska liberalna stranka or SLS) was a conservative liberal and monarchist political party in Serbia.


Following their catastrophic defeat in the 1990 election, some members of the Democratic Party's national wing felt disillusioned with the DS's leadership. On 22 January 1991 academicians Nikola Milošević and Kosta Čavoški, as well as director Aleksandar Petrović, left the Democratic Party to form the Serbian Liberal Party.[1][2] The party was also supported by other prominent academicians such as Vasilije Krestić, Smilja Avramov, Milo Lompar and Žarko Trebješanin.[3]

In the 2003 parliamentary election the party obtained one seat in the National Assembly on the list of the Democratic Party of Serbia.

The Serbian Liberal Party officially ceased to exist on 24 January 2010. Its legal successor is the Serbian Liberal Council citizen's group.[4]
