National Liberal Party (NLP)

The National Liberal Party (NLP) was a political party in Bermuda.

The NLP was established in 1985 as a breakaway from the Progressive Labour Party (PLP) by a group of members opposed to the leadership of Lois Browne-Evans. Four sitting MPs left to join the party, Gilbert Darrell, Austin Thomas, Lionel Simmons and Walter Brangman, although Simmons later returned to the PLP.

The new party won two seats in the 1985 general elections with Thomas and leader Darrell retaining their seats.

Although it has had as many as four Members of Parliament at one point, the party failed to win any seats in either the 1998 or the 2003 election. A new party leader, Graeme Outerbridge, tried to maintain the party's centrist approach. However, a general movement by the two main political parties towards the centre ground in recent years has left the NLP struggling to differentiate itself on specific issues.
