The Libertarian Party is still in its primary stages. An initial constitution is currently being developed with the sole purpose of ticking boxes for various electoral commissions. A more comprehensive constitution will be developed thereafter.
The Libertarian Party is led by the Libertarian Party Board (LPB). The board is led by our Chairperson and is supported by a Treasurer, Secretary, and Spokesperson. A portfolio approach is taken for many day-to-day operations.
More detailed information on the structure, constitution, people, and timelines will be shared on this page by January 2021.
