Liberalism has been a major force in Sweden since the 19th century. Nowadays the Liberal People's Party (Folkpartiet Liberalerna, member LI, ELDR) calls itself a centre-right liberal party. The Centre Party (Centerpartiet, member ELDR) is an agrarian party that gradually develops into a more or less liberal party.
1958: The agrarian Rural Party - Farmers' League (Landbygdspartiet Bondeförbundet) renamed itself into Centre Party (Centerpartiet) and evolved gradually from an agrarian into a more liberal direction.
