The Conservative Party or Hizb Al-Mohafezeen (Arabic: حزب المحافظين‎) is a political party in Egypt. The party has a conservative liberal ideology, and its slogan is "a Party working for all Egyptians". The founder is Mostafa Abdel Aziz, a writer and a journalist, and in its foundation the party included many notable Egyptian journalists and public figures. The current leader, Akmal Kertam, was an influential member of the National Democratic Party.[3] The Party froze in 2010, as a rejection to the Political and security laws that were forced upon other political parties in that era by the former Mubarak regime, as well as due to the low funding it had. Yet after the 2011 Egyptian revolution, and with new free laws for political activity, the party notified governmental institutions that it will be back in business.
