The Liberal Civil Resistance Party (in Spanish: Partido Resistencia Civil Liberal, PRCL) was a Panamanian centrist liberal political party.

It was founded in 1959 [1] , by Víctor Florencio Goytía [2] , former National Liberal Party leader and its candidate for president in the election, held in 1956. [3]

The party's political guidelines uphold the principles of freedom, humanism, progressive liberalism and social harmony. [4]
