The Liberal Democratic Party of Japan (自由民主党 Jiyū-Minshutō), frequently abbreviated to LDP or Jimintō (自民党), is a centre-right conservative political party in Japan.
Following the 2009 election, the LDP became the ruling party in the House of Representatives, defeating the long-dominant Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) and gaining the largest number of seats in both the House of Representatives and the House of Councillors. The LDP was ousted from government by the DPJ in the 2012 general election.
