The Liberal-Economic Power Party, originally referred to as the New Liberal Party, is a libertarian political party in Israel, established in 2019 by former members of Zehut, including Gilad Alper, Libby Molad, Boaz Arad, Yaron Lerman, and Rafael Minnes.[1]

History[edit]

The former members of Zehut came out in support of Yamina and the New Right following Zehut leader Moshe Feiglin's decision to withdraw from the September 2019 Israeli legislative election, noting that they and Yamina shared similar views on "liberalism, a free economy and individual liberty." [2]

Members of the party had in talks with New Right leader Naftali Bennett to discuss a potential alliance for the 2020 Israeli legislative election[1], though a source has indicated the party would been given one realistic slot on the New Rights' electoral list.[3] However, the New Right ultimately rejoined the Yamina alliance when it reformed on 15 January 2020.[4] Talks between the two parties eventually stalled and the Liberal-Economic Power party ran separately from the newly revived Yamina alliance.
