Liberal National Party of Queensland (LNP) is a centre-right political party in Queensland, Australia.





The Liberal National Party (LNP) is a centre-right political party in Queensland, Australia. It is the Queensland division of the Liberal Party of Australia and is associated with the National Party of Australia after having been formed by merger of the Queensland divisions of both of those parties on 26 July 2008.


The party is considered to be on the centre-right of Queensland politics. In Australia, the term Liberalism refers to centre-right economic liberalism, rather than centre-left social liberalism as in some other English-speaking countries such as the U.S.A. Party ideology has therefore been referred to as liberalism, distinct from its meaning in U.S. English-speaking countries, but also as conservatism, which features strongly in party ideology.


The newly established party won government for the first time at the 2012 state election, winning 78 out of 89 seats, a record majority in the unicameral Parliament of Queensland. Its leader, Campbell Newman, is the Premier of Queensland.
