Freedom and Accord Party

The Freedom and Accord Party or Party of Freedom and Accord (Turkish: Hürriyet ve İtilâf Fırkası) was a liberal Ottoman political party active between 1911 and 1913, during the Second Constitutional Period. Its Predecessor, Liberal Union, was the second biggest party in the Ottoman parliament of 1909. It had managed to organize covering most of the provinces of the Ottoman Empire.

The Freedom and Accord Party was the main challenger to the Committee of Union and Progress during the 1912 elections. Notable members included Rıza Tevfik Bölükbaşı, Ali Kemal Bey, Damat Ferid Pasha and Lütfi Fikri Bey.

The party was suppressed after the Bab-i Ali coup of January 1913. It was only re-established in the aftermath of the World War I. In the post-1918 Ottoman Empire, the Hürriyet ve İtilaf Party became known for its attempts to suppress the Committee of Union and Progress.
