F.D.P. of the GDR
The Freie Demokratische Partei of the GDR is one of the new establishments in the liberal spectrum of the GDR. Its constitutional meeting took place on 4th February 1990 in East Berlin, after a demand had been issued on 25th November 1989 for the establishment of a Free Democratic party. The reason for the demand was the prolonged and inconsequential renewal of the LDPD and the uncertainty in which direction the former block party was developing. On 12th February 1990, the F.D.P. of the GDR joined the "Bund Freier Demokraten" ( Association of Free Democrats).
