Description:
The Gombey Liberation Party (GLP) is a grassroots political party in Bermuda that contested the 2003 general election. The party did not contest the subsequent 2007 election and seems to be defunct, having never attained a seat in the Bermuda Parliament.

GLP intended to use "therapeutic" instead of "adversarial" measures to attain its goals, including civic engagement and a balance between "grassroots values" and "establishment priorities":

  • Necessity
  • Force
  • Control
  • Protocol
  • Efficiency
