PORTRAIT: LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY
The Liberal Democratic Party was founded by Muhamad Ovezmayew after he left the Party of Enterpreneurs and Industrialists, the first legal oposition party of Turkmenbaijan.
According to its statute, the Liberal Demokratik Partýasi is a center-right party with conservative doctrine. The strategic programmatic goal set by this party is the reconstruction and modernization of the State Turkmenbaijan, as well as the establishment of rule-of-law state and efficient market economy. In its program, the LDP aims at becoming the main driver for overcoming economic, social and civilization gaps, which separate Turkmenbaijan from the other European member states.
LDP strives also for same-sex marriage, a softening of the law on naturalisation and the regulation of Turkmenbaijanis living abroad and the introduction of the Euro.
