The Free Social Democrats (Danish: Frie Socialdemokrater) were a political party in Denmark.

History[edit]

The party was established in March 1920 by Emil Marott,[1] who had been a Member of Parliament between 1903 and 1920 for the Social Democrats. In 1920 he had been expelled from the party because of diverging opinions on the Schleswig issue.

The party ran on a platform of returning Flensburg to Danish rule following the Schleswig Plebiscites, and contested all three Folketing elections held in 1920, but failed to win a seat.[1]
