National Liberal Party (PNL, Romania)
Most significant centre-right conservative-liberal political party in Romania. Re-founded in 1990 after the Romanian revolution, it presents itself as the first formally constituted political party in the country and the oldest in the family of European liberal parties. Until 2014, the PNL had been a member of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE). The party statutes adopted in June 2014 dropped any reference to international affiliation, consequently most of its MEPs joined the European People's Party (EPP) group in the European Parliament.
