List of political parties in Liberia

This article lists political parties in Liberia. Liberia has a multi-party system with numerous political parties, in which no one party often has a chance of gaining power alone, and parties must work with each other to form coalition governments. Membership in parties tends to be fluid, as the party leader at the time holds significant influence over the ideology the party follows. As such, switching parties is more common than in other countries.
