I presume you mean the Freie Demokratische Partei (FDP) - the Free
Democratic Party. They are the German liberal party - the strongest
faction is made up of economic liberals, but there is also a social
liberal wing. They were in coalition with the CDU at the federal level
before the last federal elections.
