Liberty, until 8 October 2016 and since December 2018 known as Coalition for the Renewal of the Republic – Liberty and Hope (KORWiN),[6] is a right-libertarian, free market-capitalist and hard Eurosceptic political party in Poland established in 2015 by Janusz Korwin-Mikke as a result of his removal from Congress of the New Right, his former party.[7] Among the party's other members are Przemysław Wipler, who held a seat in the Polish Sejm and Robert Iwaszkiewicz, Member of the European Parliament. The party's Polish name was originally a backronym of the founder's name Korwin-Mikke, who took part in the 2015 presidential election.[8]
