The Liberal Constitutional Party was founded in 1922 during a meeting chaired by Adli Yakan Pasha, and some time later the party launched a newspaper, the al-Siyāsa (The Politics). Several Wafd-liberal like Muhammad Mahmoud Pasha, Muhammad Husayn Haykal and Ali Mahir Pasha joined in the party.
The party, despite the Wafd that has been nationalist and conservative views, supported the creation of a liberal constitution (approved on 19 April 1923), the secularization of the State, the approach to the United Kingdom and also the total unification of Egypt and Sudan.
The party was banned, like the others political parties, after the coup d'état of 1952.
