The Liberal Party (Hungarian: Szabadelvű Párt) was a political party in Hungary between 1875 and 1906.


The party was established in February 1875 by a merger of the Deák Party and the Left Centre.[1] It won a huge majority in the 1875 elections, with former Left Centre member Kálmán Tisza becoming Prime Minister. Tisza remained Prime Minister until 1890, and using violence,[1] the party retained its parliamentary majority until the 1905 elections, which saw the Independence and '48 Party win the most seats. The following year the party was disbanded.
