The Libertarian Party (Spanish: Partido Libertario, abbr. PL) is the Argentine current-ruling political party. It promotes elements of social conservatism and right-libertarianism, being supportive of economic liberalism[11] and minarchism. The party is currently led by president Javier Milei, who won the 2023 Argentine general election runoff, placed second in the first round of the general election and placed first in the Argentine primary election with 29.86% of the vote.[12][13][14] The party is also a founding member of the coalition La Libertad Avanza, which is also led by Javier Milei.[15]

The party's ideology, according to its own platform, centers on libertarianism, advocating for free markets and a minimal and secular state, among other ideas.[11] However, among its followers, there are positions ranging from classical liberalism and conservatism to anarcho-capitalism and cross-sectional approaches.[16][17]

The party has obtained authorization to support national-level candidacies. The establishment of the National Executive Board took place in Rosario, with the participation of libertarian leaders from various provinces. It is chaired by Ramiro Marra, who also holds the position of legislator in the Buenos Aires City Legislature. Furthermore, the party holds national legal recognition and is established in eleven districts, including the Federal Capital.

History

The party was founded in 2018 by a majority of young individuals from various regions of the country. They were connected and grouped through social networks and debate forums, all sympathizers of the media-savvy economist Javier Milei. On February 23 of the following year, during a party event in the Federal Capital organized by the Libertarian Party, Milei publicly affiliated with the party and was simultaneously appointed its honorary president.[18]
