Who we are

The Africa Liberal Network (ALN) is an alliance of 47 liberal democratic political parties and organisations from 30 African countries. The ALN is an associate regional organisation of Liberal International, the world federation of liberal and progressive democratic political parties. We aim to promote liberal democratic principles across the African continent by (1) providing a platform for like-minded liberals in Africa to share information, experience, skills, and ideas, and (2) capacitating our member parties with the skills they need to win elections and manage governments based on Liberal values.

Liberal Democracy | Member Parties

The #ALNmember parties are bound by the ALN Constitution, which states that they exist to:

  • Ensure the freedom and dignity of all people by establishing political and civil rights,
  • Ensure basic freedoms,
  • Uphold the rule of law,
  • Promote democratic governance, based on free and fair elections with peaceful transition,
  • Ensure religious, gender and minority rights are recognised,
  • Fight corruption,
  • Establish free market economies.

Liberal Democracy in Action | What We Do

As a Pan-African network of liberal democratic political parties, the ALN aims to spread liberal values across the African continent by:

  • Championing liberal policy solutions to Africa’s challenges,
  • Capacitating liberal democratic member parties with the skills they need to win elections and manage governments based on liberal values,
  • Providing a platform for like-minded liberals in Africa to network and share information, experience, skills, and ideas.
