The Liberal Party (Greek: Κόμμα Φιλελευθέρων) is a Greek liberal political party, founded in the 1980s, which claims to be the continuation of the historical Liberal Party, one of Greece's leading parties for most of the early 20th century. The current party was founded by Nikitas Venizelos, a grandson of the original party's founder and leader, Eleftherios Venizelos.

Since 1996, the party is led by the retired military officer Manolis Kalligiannis (Μανώλης Καλλιγιάννης, sometimes referred to as Emmanuel Kalligiannis). After Kalligiannis attended the Rome convention of the eurosceptic pan-European alliance Libertas.eu in May 2009,[1] the party run under the title Liberal Party - Libertas.eu (Greek: Κόμμα Φιλελευθέρων - Libertas.eu) for the 2009 European Parliament elections.
