Liberal Democracy Foundation
The Liberal Democratic Party is a party in the Republic of Mordusia. Currently it controls 26% of the Assembly and has four seats in the Cabinet.
The Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) was founded in 2275 as a progressive, social democratic party. It struggled for the first two decades of its existance to become relavent in the Mordusian political scene, but towards the end of the century, under the leadership of Sacha Trudeau, the party became the strongest opposition party in the assembly, receiving over 26% of the vote in the 2301 election. Sacha Trudeau was defeated as party leader the next year, largely over his handling of the Kafuristan affair, where he insisted on the closing of the borders to Kafuristan citizens and goods - most people withing the LDP opposed this position.
