The Social Liberal Movement (German: Sozial-Liberale Bewegung, SLB; French: Mouvement socio-libéral, MSL; Italian: Movimento social-liberale, MSL) is a social conservative party in Switzerland. Founded in 2011, the SLB has one member of the National Council.
The party was founded by Samuel Schmid on 23 April 2011. Schmid, a member of the Grand Council of Aargau originally elected for the right-wing Federal Democratic Union, was joined in June 2011 by Ricardo Lumengo, a member of the National Council originally elected for the centre-left Social Democratic Party.
The party failed to have any representatives elected at the 2011 federal election: winning 0.5% of the vote in Aargau and 0.3% of the vote in Bern.
