The Leeberal Democratic Pairty o Japan (自由民主党, Jiyū-Minshutō), frequently abbreviatit tae LDP, Jimintō (自民党) or Lib Dems, is a conservative[7] poleetical pairty in Japan. It is ane o the maist consistently successful poleetical pairties in the warld. The LDP haes been in pouer syne 1955, except for a brief 11 month period atween 1993 an 1994, an frae 2009 tae 2012. In the 2012 election it regained control o govrenment. It haulds 295 seats in the lawer hoose an 115 seats in the upper hoose.

The LDP is nae tae be confused wi the nou-defunct Leeberal Pairty (自由党, Jiyūtō), which merged wi the Democratic Pairty o Japan, the main opposeetion party, in November 2003.[8]
